Farnese Fantini Sangiovese 2015


  • Trophy - International Wine Challenge 2014
  • Highly Commended - The Wine Merchant Top 100

Bright ruby red with garnet reflections. An intense, fruity bouquet with floral hints and some richer spicy notes. A full, well balanced palate with lovely ripe dark red fruits and soft tannins.

Due to a cool spring there was a delay in the vegetation cycle of around 10 days, which meant that harvest began at the end of September. Conditions throughout the year promoted a good natural balance of pH and acidity, with plenty of freshness at the same time as good colour concentration.

Grapes for the Sangiovese 'Terre di Chieti' are grown in the communes of Ortona and San Salvo on the Adriatic coast of the Abruzzo. The vines are planted with a south eastern aspect on clay-limestone soil and trained using a pergola training system.
