The rolling hills of Tuscany are home to the Sangiovese grape. Here our producers make mouth-filling, rich and robust red wines from this noble grape.
The IL Bastardo winery is located in the Rufina area of Tuscany just 20 KM’s outside of Florence in the Sieve River Valley and considered the best area for Sangiovese grapes after the “Classico” Region. Our consulting winemaker, Paolo Masi macerates the crushed grapes on the skins in stainless steel for 10 days creating a brightly colored fruit forward wine. Dark Ruby red color, aromatic nose, with blackberry and cherry aromas and flavors. On the palate it is medium bodied with good tannins and an overall Chianti like fruit finish. Our Sangiovese is a “junior” Chianti through and through, and offering excellent price value.
We also now have an easier access package since we have changed over to the Stelvin screw cap closure.
