San Patrignano – Sangiovese di Romagna Sup. Riserva “Avi”

R430.00

The history of San Patrignano winery began in the ‘70s when Vincenzo Muccioli decided to create a rehabilitation Community which helped people who needed it and provided them with work. Riccardo Cotarella took the helm and helped move the production into the 21st century. In these hills, Sangiovese takes on a new and unique identity which is smoother and mellower with sweeter tannins, all these features define the San Patrignano Sangiovese. Avi is the utmost expression of the quality of Sangiovese produced in San Patrignano. The wine is dedicated to Vincenzo (AVIncenzo), the founder of the Community, and our forefathers (or AVI) who have handed down to us cultivation of this extraordinary variety. The bouquet is broad and features hints of violet, plum and Marasca cherry. The palate is elegant, with the structure and velvety tannins of Sangiovese typical of our terroir. The pleasant sapidity leaves a finish with inviting hints of fruits of the forest, leather and liquorice.
