Il Civettaio – Sangiovese – 2017


Grape Varietals: 100% Sangiovese

Tasting Notes:  This wine spends 2 years in 38HL oak barrels so give it a little time to open up …and once it does, it will blow your socks off.  A true expression of the Sangiovese grape, tobacco and leather are there as you would expect with hints of aniseed and liquorice on the finish. This vintage comes in a little hotter as 2017 was the hottest year on record in Southern Tuscany 

Pair it with: Ribeye steak and chips

Region: Paganico, Tuscany

Did you know?: Gregorio the producer studied economics at university and worked as an auditor.  Then on his 40th birthday he packed it in, packed up and moved to Il Civettaio to manage a farm and make wine.  What a legend.
