A deliciously pure Sangiovese from Montalcino that emphasizes fresh fruit and quaffability! The vineyards range in elevation from 300 to 350 meters above sea level. Fermented in stainless steel on the skins for 14-18 days, then racked and clarified by decantation rather than filtration prior to bottling.

The 2017 San Biagio shows floral-laced wild strawberries, white pepper, sage and stone dust. It's a pure and feminine expression of Sangiovese with salty minerals and bright acids, yet there's a bit of a green streak toward the close. Inner violet and savory herbal tones linger on the fresh and flowery finish. I am not finding the primary fruit I'm used to in this bottling, but there's no denying how aromatically alluring it is.
