Sangiovese, Montepulciano

75cl * Organic * Vegetarian * 13.5% ABV * Marche, Italy

Sourced for Taurus Wines by Master of Wine Michael Palij, Count Saladini Pilastri’s fully organic farm began 300 years ago. This red is a blend of Montepulciano (20%) and Sangiovese (80%), mellowed for four months in French oak barrels. This results in a berry and black cherry scented bouquet followed by a plush cherry fruit-driven palate, which is bolstered by vanilla bean and leather notes, as well as some soft tannins on the finish.

Best decanted (1 hour at least) and served at room temperature (18°C) to accompany all kinds of roast meat – light enough for chicken and pork but heavy enough for grilled steak, it’s also a delicious match for tomato-based pasta dishes, a fully loaded pizza, cold meats or cheese.

Intended for drinking in its youth, this approachable red will last until 2025 if you want to stock up!
