Alberese, Fattoria di Sammontana 2020
Sangiovese - Trebbiano. Tuscany, Italy
This blend of red and white grapes yields a wine that is light, energetic, juicy, but that also has a streak of seriousness. Sangiovese and Trebbiano are fermented together with a very brief time on skins, and then aged in steel tanks. Red fruit profile, a mineral edge, and lovely savoury note. The perfect red for a warm day or night.
Made by Daniele & Dario, the fourth generation at this Tuscan estate. Within the range they make a balanced mix of traditional Sangioveses along with experimental wines vinified in clay amphoras (see the orange wine section).
