Colli Ripani 2013 Sangiovese


Marche Rosso IGT

100% Sangiovese

Italy’s most widely dispersed indigenous grape, Sangiovese derives name from Latin sanguis Jovis, “blood of Jupiter”. In the seaside hills of the Marche, it grows beautifully.

"The grapes are grown in the Ripatransone township and neighboring villages. The must goes through maceration before soft-pressing and a controlled fermentation. The wine is a brilliant ruby-red. It has a light fruity fragrance and is very well-balanced on the palate, with good alcohol and acidity, and a medium finish. The delicate nature of the tannins allow for this wine to be drunk with a variety of meals."
