San Valentino Bacaia Sangiovese Superiore

San Valentino Bacaia Sangiovese Superiore 2018

Emilia-Romagna, ItalySan Valentino is a certified organic property owned by the Mascarin family since 1990, and is centered on the hills of Rimini, near the sea. This sangiovese is from 150m, and 12 year old vines, native fermented and aged in stainless and concrete, and rested for up to 10 months in large French wood casks. Teeming with dark plums, cherry, earth, and leather, this has a lovely texture from the site, concrete, and older casks. Acidity is bright, and tannins are supple and lightly grippy, housing this fuller wine to a lingering, rosemary spiced finish. A smart sangiovese, drinking well now and with time ahead.Tasted: 17 December 2020Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: ON 23.95 consignment Producer: San ValentinoDistributors: The Drinks List
