Fresh and spicy Sangio for the fire child.  

Tastes like
Raspberry, black cherry and tomato leaf, rounded out with a little liquorice and vanilla. Spicy vibes, dried fruit notes and a smattering of herbs. Some rustic, tannic drive - very directional, determined and dry. 

Feels like
Savoury, but sexy.

Winemaking
Fruit was tipped directly into three open fermenters and seeded with a robust organic yeast chosen to naturally maximise extraction of sugar, colour and tannin and negate any cloudiness in the wine (and therefore the need to filter). The fermenting Sangiovese was pressed into tank after 10 days and left to finish its fermentation before it was racked off lees and into barrel in June 2020. Air was introduced with regular racking to develop aromatics and leave behind the sweaty aromas this variety can create in its youth. The wine was tasted and topped regularly to maintain freshness. The 2020 was assembled after 12 months in wood and bottled in July 2021.
