2019 Passo dei Caprioli, IGT Toscana Rosso, Poggio il Castellare, Montalcino, Tuscany

£14.00 inc. VAT

Deliciously fresh and juicy blend of 70% Sangiovese Grosso (Brunello) and 30% Merlot from one of Montalcino’s most exciting producers.

From elevated vineyards in Montalcino that are rich in limestone this is a lusciously smooth red that’s bang on for drinking now. It’s matured in steel vats before bottling so the wine has a lovely purity of fruit.

Eric Guido from Antonio Galloni’s much revered Vinous website sums the wine up nicely –

“Wild flowers, young strawberries and peppery herbal tones lift up from the 2019 Passo dei Caprioli. It’s wonderfully fresh yet soothing and soft, showcasing pretty, violet-tinged wild berry fruit. This perfumed expression continues throughout the long, floral finish, with just a hint of residual acids that keep the mouth watering.” 88 points Eric Guido, Vinous

With its low yields (similar to Cru Classé Bordeaux), exceptional terroir and excellent winemaking prowess, this is a wine that should be far more expensive than what it is.
