Rossi & Riccardo Sangiovese 2011 Toscano IGT
The Rossi & Riccardo range showcases some of Italy’s most important and characterful grape varieties in pure and unadorned forms, providing expressions that are distinctly varietal and unmistakably Italian. All fruit is sourced from prime vineyards that are farmed along organic lines. Each variety is handled by a producer with a profound connection to that grape and its classic territory, and articulated in an authentic way – no tricks just pure, vibrant expressions from the finest makers.
100% Sangiovese. The savoury toned nose is packed with notes of dried and sour cherries, spiced plum and hard herbs, underpinned by an earthy and mineral tinged thread. There is plenty of fruit intensity here, consistent with the strong vintage, but it’s carried with classically food-friendly structure through a long finish.
