From the Palpacelli family vineyards in Staffolo, Sangiovese grapes are harvested at night, gently pressed and cool fermented in stainless steel tanks, with just a few months to round out before bottling. The emphasis here is very much on taming tannins in favour of big ripe fruit flavours, and they succeed wonderfully.
Vivacious ruby red in colour, this is intensely fruity on the nose, fresh cherries, blueberries and violets to the fore, with subtle savoury, herbal elements. The palate is fresh and fruity, well balanced with a refined tannic structure, cherries and blackberries with underlying hints of leather, prune and liquorice.
You can serve this lightly chilled, superb with tomato-based dishes, characuterie or antipasti.
