Podere Santa Maria

Montalcino, Toscana



Sangiovese from a small parcel of twenty year old vines planted over volcanic soils in Castiglione d’Orcia, right by Monte Amiata. The grapes were destemmed and macerated on the skins for three weeks, before being pressed off for a year of rest in old oak casks. Despite the warmth of the vintage, Marino has produced a soulful, elegant wine that impresses with dark cherry, smoke and minerals. A great introduction to the house style, for those of us for whom his Brunello might be a stretch.
