Fattoria Il Lago, Chianti Rufina Reserva, DOCG Tuscany, Italy

Regular price £21.99

Hugely persistent Sangiovese, in perfect balance.

Fattoria Il Lago is a Tuscan Winery and Olive Oil producing country estate, situated just outside of florence near the small town of Docomano. The estate belonged to the noble Florentine family of Bartolini-Vivai-Salimbeni hundreds of year ago, then in 1962 the farm was purchased by the Spagnoli family who began the slow process of restoring many dilapidated buildings and overhauling the vineyards and replanting the Sangiovese grape vines.

Tasting Note: Ruby red with pale garnet shades. Ample ripe fruit, preserve and cherry notes. Dry with structure and presence yet still quite delicate and well balanced. The end is persistent and harmonic.
