Tenuta Santodeno Sangiovese Appassimento
This winery is located in the Bidente Valley that forms the border between Emilia-Romagna and Tuscany. They focus on Sangiovese made in the traditional Appassimento style, which involves leaving hand-picked grapes in small crates to slowly dry out before being pressed, which intensifies and concentrates its flavours. The result is high octance, super-rich wine with all the sun-drenched flavours of Italy.
This is Sangiovese with an intense ruby colour and deep and rich aromas of deep red fruits, blackberry jam and spices. Full and concentrated on the palate with soft tannins and a good balance of sweetness and weight. Amarone style without the price tag!
