IGT Maremma Toscana Estatatura
From the Tuscany wine region of Italy comes this amazing wine, made exclusively from Sangiovese grapes. The fresh air and quality terroir of Tuscany makes for quality grapes. Add to that 14 months aging in oak barrels, and you have a ruby red wine that's rich, layered, and highly complex. There are classic Tuscan aromas of wild cherries, blackberries, and raspberries. There is even a hint of herbs on the palate, and you'll love the broad, mellow wine. The flavours are soft and pretty, and the wine has fine tannins and an excellent structure.
Gold Medal - Sommelier Wine Awards 2016, 'Complexity and a memorable finish helped Barone Pizzini strike Gold. Andrés Ituarte of Avenue Restaurant found this wine "fantastic value", noting: "Massive tannins, dark cherry and plum with a good dose of zippy acidity." "Sour red cherries, spices, plus a touch of leather, this is fresh and creamy, with hints of mint chocolate. Outstanding," said Rossano Antonelli of Hawksmoor Air Street.' (2010 vintage)
The Pizzini family arrived in Franciacorta in the 1870s. Since then, the estates have passed through many generations of the same family, until in the 1990s a group of local wine entrepreneurs, bought the estate and started to invest in the business putting people, and the environment first. Organic techniques followed and soon they expanded their horizons by investing and buying new properties in the Maremma Toscana area and in the Marche, Castelli di Jesi. With a full range of wines from three important wine regions of Italy, Barone Pizzini are a dynamic, quality driven group whose wines are enjoying increasing recognition. We are very pleased to be working with more of their wines in the UK this year.
