Tasting Notes

Le Colline from Azienda Agricola Castelvecchio has a garnet colour.

On the nose it’s floral first but also fruity. There is also an underwood note with mushroom and wetland.

On the mouth it’s evolved too with notes of tobacco leaf, coffee and liquorice. The tannins are still crunchy.

The finish is medium long.

Wine making grape

Sangiovese is a red Italian wine grape variety named after the Latin sanguis Jovis, which means “Jupiter’s blood.” Though it is native to most of central Italy, from Romagna to Lazio, Campania, and Sicily, it is best known outside of Italy as the sole component of Brunello di Montalcino and Rosso di Montalcino, as well as the primary component of the blends Chianti, Carmignano, Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, and Morellino di Scansano, though it can also be used to make varietal wines like Sangiovese di Romagna
