Elegant & austere. Wet stone & dried fig.
Mimesi from Tenuta di Ghizzano has a ruby colour with garnet hues.
On the nose it’s floral, mineral and sapid. The bouquet shows notes of graphite and liquorice but also wet stone and dried fig.
In the mouth it’s rather austere at the beginning yet it opens with time.
The mouthfeel is still crunchy but the tannins are well integrated.
The finish is long.
Wine making grape
Sangiovese is a red Italian wine grape variety named after the Latin sanguis Jovis, which means “Jupiter’s blood.” Though it is native to most of central Italy, from Romagna to Lazio, Campania, and Sicily, it is best known outside of Italy as the sole component of Brunello di Montalcino and Rosso di Montalcino, as well as the primary component of the blends Chianti, Carmignano, Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, and Morellino di Scansano, though it can also be used to make varietal wines like Sangiovese di RomagnaLink to here... | Derived from 'Sangiovese' on Wikipedia
