Region: Le Marche
Highlighted Pairing: Lamb Shank
A roughly even blend of Sangiovese and Montepulciano planted over clay and limestone. The former is fermented with whole bunches, the latter as a ‘cerasuolo’, given merely the most gentle of presses to retain the grape’s delicate character and perfume. The wine ferments in old vertical barrels, before being pressed off stainless steel for a year. It is a lovely marriage of the two grapes, with bright cherries and a rustic, earthy character making for a wine of real charm.
