Tenuta il Palagio When We Dance Chianti 2019

Tuscany, ItalyTuscany's Villa Il Palagio has been a vine growing and wine making estate since the 16th century. For the last two decades it's been the summer home of Sting and Trudy Styler, who have transformed the estate into a vibrant organic farm and vineyard. Over that time, they've worked with consultants Alan York and Pedro Parra to design the vineyards and farming practices. This sangiovese is splashed with canaiolo and colorino, and was fermented and aged in stainless for six months. This medium bodied wine is open and welcoming, with morello cherry, red florals, crunchy plum, a lick of leather, and fine dried herbs. Acidity is bright, and tannins are fine, guiding this to a lightly peppered and amply saline finish. Ready for cracking now, ideally with a simple tomato sauced pasta.Tasted: 10 January 2022Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
