I Veroni Rosso di Toscana 2019

15.00

Sale

Description

Tuscan blend of Merlot, Sangiovese and Petit Verdot matured for six months in French oak barrels.

Ruby red with violet reflections, the nose is a boistrous medley of plum, cherries, tobacco and peppery spice, hints of vanilla and nut showing off some wood influence. This is beautifully structured, prominent red fruit flavours framed by deft tannins and a cleansing acidity, cranberry and sour cherry balancing sweet raspberry, with herbal, nut and delicate spice notes on the finish. Really tasty, easy-drinking stuff, with good complexity, structure and balance.

Great with characuterie or mature cheeses but equally at home with good pizza and simple pasta dishes.

Producer: I Veroni

There's evidence of wine-growing at I Veroni going back to the middle ages, with a parts of a stone fermentation tank built in 1809 still visible in the cellars. Current ownership dates back to the start of the 20th century, Carlo Malesci purchasing the property, with it remaining in the family to this day.

The modest 20 hectares of vineyards are fully organic and were largely replanted in 1998, with Sangiovese making up 80% of vines; this is Chianti after all. Rùfina is the highest and most prestigious of the seven Chianti subzones, something owner Lorenzo Mariani was keen to honour and exploit when it came to reinvigorating the type and quality of wines the estate was producing during the early noughties. This is a proud, old estate with new energy and ideas.

Focusing on the authentic Sangiovese-Rùfina tradition, we work with three reds, one IGT and two Chianti Rùfina DOCG, and a luxurious, hedonistic Vin Santo.
