Spigallo Chianti 2016

14.99

Description

Mid-ruby in colour with an enticing perfume of roses, blackcurrant and blueberry. The rich, polished palate is full and lively, boasting black cherry and pepper, and juicy hints of plum and capers, supported by sweet tannins and a crisp, clean finish. Spigallo is an 80/20 blend of Sangiovese and Merlot, matured for 6 months in traditional Tuscan large chestnut wood barrels.

At its absolute best with a board of charcuterie, cheese and crunchy sourbread.

Producer: Fattoria Il Muro

Il Muro estate has been owned by the Pancaro family for more than two centuries. In the 17th century’s, poet Francesco Redi, whose villa can be admired on the side of Poggio Mendico, celebrated the vineyards and the wines of this area, describing them as blood-red, gold-red, sparkling, bright and spicy in his well-known poem “Bacchus in Tuscany”

Situated in the very heart of Tuscany, a few miles from the medieval city of Arezzo, the estate is actually a full working farm, extending over 65 hectares of woods, vineyards and olive groves. Fruit and vegetables are grown, and hens and pigs are raised for eggs and salumi. But the land is made for wine; 'galestro' soils, a mix of loose marl and limestone, and a temperate climate regulated by the nearby Alpe di Poti mountain range, provide the perfect terroir for traditional Tuscan grapes Sangiovese, Trebbiano, Malvasia and Vermentino.
