100% Sangiovese from Tuscany
2020 Castello Tricerchi Iuli'o Rosso
Italy’s most widely-planted grape variety and the signature grape of Central Italy shines in this 100% Sangiovese release from Castello Tricerchi in Tuscany.
This historic boutique estate on the north side of Montalcino is dedicated entirely to the production of top-quality Sangiovese made from the area’s renowned clone, Brunello. The estate's north-facing slopes provide cooler temperatures and significant diurnal variations, ensuring superior development and ripening conditions.
The Tricerchi Iuli’o is made with handpicked, organically-farmed Sangiovese from 16 year-old vines from the fantastic 2020 vintage. Clear, intense ruby in the glass. The aroma offers cherry and spice whilst the palate is warm, rounded and balanced with a long finish. This is a smooth and slightly tannic wine with solid aging potential. A perfect accompaniment for charcuterie, lamb, beef, pizza, pasta or risotto.
