La Fralluca "Ciparisso" 2015

100% Sangiovese
A still red wine from the Toscana region of Italy.

Evolved & elegant. Underwood, tobacco leaf & chocolate.

Tasting Notes

Ciparisso 2015 from La Fralluca estate has an evolved ruby colour with garnet hues.

On the nose it’s elegant and rather evolved with notes of leather, tobacco leaf, wetland and a rosemary. As it opens it also shows more toasty notes of coffee and bitter chocolate.

On the palate the notes of coffee and bitter chocolate are back. In the mouth, Ciparisso is evolved and elegant, still chewy with elegant tannins.

The finish is long and elegant.

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
