PRODUCT REVIEWS

The Pietra Rossa very much caught our eye, with its darker, denser texture, exotic perfume, and almost luxurious ripe blackberry palate. From a single vineyard site noted for wines of a more muscular frame, the Pietra Rossa is perhaps the most 'modern' and easy to drink in style with its profound berry fruit.

Producer Information - Contucci

Contucci has long been a favourite producer of ours, and is the source of some of the very finest wines in Montepulciano.

The Contucci family has been producing wine in the region since the renaissance, and was one of the founding fathers of Vino Nobile in the 17th century. The wines here are made in a traditional style, and have great presence and class. It was hard to choose between the various Vini Nobile produced here – all are delicious.

Region Information - Tuscany

For many people Tuscany represents the very heart and soul of Italian wine. Arguably the nation's greatest region for fine wine, it actually only accounts for a mere 6% of its overall production.

Though white wine is produced here, and to great effect, the true notoriety of the region is more reflected in the DOC and DOCG communes of Chianti, Montepulciano, Montalcino and Bolgheri. Here Sangiovese is king and reaches its absolute apogee. Famously, it is also where its marriage to international grape varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot has had a transcendent effect on quality for numerous new wave estates.

Grape Variety - Sangiovese

Italy's most planted red grape variety, with it's heartland being found in the Tuscany region. Sangiovese is the principle grape at the heart of the great wines of Chianti, Brunello Di Montalcino and Nobile Di Montepulciano. Sangiovese wines can have a sour cherry flavour and develop characteristics of leather and farmyard as they mature.

Not particularl deep in colour the wines often have a good level of acidity and sometimes a slightly rustic character. A number of Italian producers have broken away from convention and started to blend Sangiovese with Cabernet Sauvignon, the resulting "Super Tuscans" have become some of the most expensive and sought after wines in the world.
