INCLUDES SANGIOVESE WINE SCHOOL DEEP DIVE NOTES
Antinori Peppoli - icon producer & Classico from the village of San Cascisano. The most approachable of the bunch as of now. (NOW INCLUDING 2020 instead of 2019)
Fontodi - from Greve, the producer that simply cannot make a bad wine, for our money consistently the greatest pound for pound producer.
Tenuta Carleone - made by the infamous Il Guercio, Sean O'Callaghan in Radda, unoaked and fermented in cement and steel for steely purity.
Isole e Olena - possibly the most famous Classico from certainly the most famous producer Paolo di Marchi in Castellina.
Rocca di Montegrossi - from the site where the original recipe for Chianti was coined in Gaoile, this is robust and deep.
- the furthest South in Castelnouvo Bardenega
, this is rustic and rugged Sangiovese from Felsina.
The variations in aspect, soil, altitude make the rolling hills of Tuscany as terroir-reactive as Barolo & Burgundy. School's in! STSWine
