Tenuta Giustini Vecchio Sogno Negroamaro 2016

Tenuta Giustini Vecchio Sogno Negroamaro 2016

Puglia, Italy

$23.75 / each

Description:

This sustainably grown bottling is comprised of the indigenous southern Italian variety Negroamaro which thrives in the Salento region of Puglia. Savory and earthy, this wine shows very expressive aromatic notes of tomato leaf, ripe fig and black plum, as well as a healthy amount of tannic grip, which gives the wine beautiful structure in the mouth. This bottling is also remarkably bright and high-toned, compared to other wines from this region which can oftentimes be clunky and over-ripe.

Tuscany, Italy

$23.75 / each

Description:

Ciliegiolo is an indigenous Tuscan grape that's rarely seen vinified as a single varietal wine. Most often, it's used as a blending grape for Sangiovese, however this super charming, bing cherry-scented example shows how well Ciliegiolo can stand on its own. Boutique producer San Ferdinando is based in Chianti Colli Aretini, just southwest of Florence, and practices non-interventionist winemaking, growing organically and fermenting their wines using wild yeasts.
