san giovenale are really kicking rhone’s ass. this is one of our amazing finds, which is just becoming better and better.
intense aroma of ripe blackberries and blueberries, followed with spices and mediterranean herbs and floral notes such as lavender and violets.
this. a big bodied wine with concentration, striation and polished tannins, but still luxurious texture.
everything is held wonderfully together with beautiful balance and acidity leading the way into looong finish.
match the same way you would match a full bodied rhone blend. this wine goes beautifully with french cuisine. a beef or game casserole for example.
each grape variety is hand picked and vinified seperately. the wine is aged for 20 months in new french oak barrels, adding lots of flavours and tannin to the wine.
these guys are being talked about, a lot! san giovenale are doing some serious innovative and game changing stuff in lazio. all organic, it’s both serious quality and good for mother earth.
