Sangiovese, the native grape of Tuscany, can be a very challenging wine to harness. Here at Conti di San Bonifacio, the terroir and the careful discipline applied in the Cantina has paid off. Our Monteregio di Massa Marittima DOC has established itself as a benchmark tuscan red wine.
A wine the colour of ruby garnet just like the more famous cousins from Brunello di Montalcino.
Now though it is an established DOC and in the glass this is a wine which gives back way more than you pay.
Sangiovese (85%), Syrah (10%), Cabernet Franc (5%)
In temperature-controlled stainless steel vats at 26º-28º C
18 months in second year French oak barrels.
A wine the colour of ruby garnet just like those Brunellos! Ruby is the colour of Sangiovese.
Intense red fruit along with highly pleasurable notes of blueberry, cocoa, oak and hint of cinnamon on the nose.
Densely textured and persistent on the palate with a savoury freshness. It fully respects the character of the Sangiovese grape from the Monteregio hills with a nice long lasting finish. The well-managed tannins blend perfectly with the oak, making this a complex and elegant Tuscan red wine with a lovely length and persistence and smooth finish.
