From the hectic and much varied 2016 vintage, our sangiovese proves the point that if you live in interesting times, you will be a much more interesting person yourself. Deeper in colour, more weight and complexity is shown in aroma and texture. Brooding sour cherry laced with juniper and and spice. A lovely weighted wine
Anything with tomatoes in it will work a treat. Sangiovese goes head to head with high acid food like battlebots. So pizza and pasta along with more complex braised veal and game dishes will defs go well with here.
