Ripe cherries, herbs, dry earth...rethink your relationship with Sangiovese!

Medium ruby. More soil character than most of the other Borghetto wines in this range- mushroom and potting soil notes coming through. Wet concrete aroma and stronger sense of minerality as well. Again it’s a tart red fruit profile of pomegranate, peppermint candy, orange rind and menthol. Mid palate provides the necessary warm spice character and sweet tannins that turn much harder and more bitter on the finish. This will need more time to settle down and develop its fruit, but very complex and showing some great potential.

Wonderful red fruit concentration with light weight on palate tobacco and tart pomegranate nose cherry and minerals with smooth tannins young opens up with time

Starts very leafy, gradually revealing more red berry fruit, a bit like a slender Burgundy. Lots of crisp acidity and a little herbal bitterness
