Sangiovese Umbria IGP 2003

A supple 100% Sangiovese, fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks and matured in Nevers barrels for 3 months for extra smoothness and richness.

Tasting Notes

Brilliant ruby-red in color with loads of ripe blackberry, strawberry and currant on the nose. The plush fruit flavors are deliciously integrated with subtle hints of mocha, tobacco and oak spice. Full and rich with soft tannins, the lush layers of fruit

Food Pairing

This everyday Sangiovese is the perfect choice for barbecues, pastas, pizza, and sausages.
