(2 customer reviews)

£10.95 a bottle

This is a youthful and appealing wine, garnet red in colour and intense on the nose with vibrant strawberry and black cherry aromas. On the palate, it has bright fruity notes of red fruits and morello cherry, with subtle vanilla characters from the oak. The wine is well-balanced and medium-bodied with structured, firm tannins, fresh acidity and a long finish.

Origin

Grapes for the Sangiovese ‘Terre di Chieti’ are grown in the communes of Ortona and San Salvo on the Adriatic coast of Abruzzo. The vines are planted with a south-eastern aspect on clay-limestone soil and trained using a pergola training system.

Producer

The Farnese group owns Gran Sasso, Vesevo, Zabù, Vigneti del Salento, Vigneti del Vulture, Cantina di Diomede and Tufarello, among others, but this is their flagship winery. Alberto Antonini oversees production, ensuring that these wines offer great quality, varietal character and value. Their elegant and striking packaging makes them stand out on the shelf or table.

Grape Variety

100% Sangiovese.

The grapes were destemmed and crushed before undergoing an initial cold maceration for two days. Maceration and fermentation followed at 20-22°C for 10 days. Between 10 and 20% of the wine was aged in oak with the remainder aged in stainless-steel.

    I’ve been looking for good wines that aren’t too high in alcohol. This has to be one of best I’ve found in this category. Remarkable value too – packed with fruit, a measure of complexity and a silky texture. Definitely ordering some more.

    A youthful and appealing wine, garnet red in colour and quite intense on the nose with vibrant red fruit, cherries and herbal characters. On the palate it has bright fruity notes of strawberry and morello cherry, with subtle vanilla characters from the oak-aged portion. The wine is well-balanced and medium-bodied with structured, firm tannins, fresh acidity and a long finish. Great with charcuterie boards.
