Further Details

"Medium ruby red colour. The elegant bouquet opens with notes of wild roses, plums, and a variety of red fruits, underlined by intriguing scents of sandalwood, myrrh and delicate hints of cloves. The Grandi Annate 2012 is full-bodied yet delicate and round with a fresh acidity and a savoury finish that lingers on the palate."

Although this is a prestigious wine, its delicacy and immediate appeal make it perfect with a really good pasta bolognese, or otherwise your favourite red meat, game or cheese selection. Eighteen months' conditioning in French oak gives structure and finesse to the cream of the Sangiovese crop

The clip below shows leading wine expert and former world's best sommelier Andreas Larsson giving this vintage a blind tasting early in 2016.

His verdict:

"The colour is showing more evolution here. Leaning towards orange, tawny at the rim. Medium-high intensity. The nose is also showing some evolution, with more dried fruity aromas. I would say more traditional style. There is no indication of oak here, the fruitiness is more prune, dried cherry, dried tomatoes with some spicy notes, hint of leather. Classically dry palate. Still with a slightly austere texture. There is a good presence of tannin, that hasn’t fully integrated yet. Quite youthful and fresh acidity. On the finish more attractive fruit, with juicy red cherry and a certain spiciness. In my mind something that should be put back in the cellar to round off the edges a little bit more."

fits well with the winery's hope that this is a wine with very good aging potential.
