Nuovo is a wine that lets the fruit do all the talking and provides so many food matching options.
100% unoaked fresh expression of Sangiovese. Fermented in small parcels we look to maintain pristine varietal character and build in fine approachable tannin, only a light hand plunge is required to keep the Sangiovese in check before the wine is pressed into tank.
The 2016 Nuovo is perfumed bright & juicy. Fragrant cherry and cranberry aromas are supported with floral notes, spice and fennel accents. Medium bodied palate that is multi layered, streams of varietal cherry fruit leading to crunchy fresh fruits, tobacco and savoury dried herb notes, sprightly acid and fine soft tannin complete the wine.
