Il Bastardo Sangiovese di Toscanatext

Il Bastardo Sangiovese di Toscana 2021

Tuscany, ItalyThe Il Bastardo winery is located in the Rufina area of Tuscany, just 20 kilometres outside of Florence in the Sieve River Valley an area thought to be the best for growing sangiovese outside of the Classico zone. Two decades on in this market and this wine remains pretty much what it has been from the beginning: an easy sipping spaghetti and pizza red that sells for a song. The colour is dark, the nose a mix of floral, black cherry with just enough acid to keep it fresh. The Italian tannins keep it dry and earthy from front to back, and there is even a touch of mineral to gloss up the finish. Back up the truck.Tasted: 05 May 2023Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices:
