I’m not always looking for complexity and power with Sangiovese. In fact, it’s often quite the opposite as I turn to Chianti and Rosso di Montalcino as a refuge from power and richness! I love the structure of these wines and the way the fruit weaves its way around it. I have to admit that seeing an Umbrian Sangiovese finishing so strongly here did bring a smile to my face. It is a lovely wine and more Chianti than many Chiantis! A great value and a wine every Sangiovese lover should try!
