100% Prugnolo Gentile from young vines in the Casanova and Sezzana vineyards, in Terricciola and Casciana Terme respectively.
Aged entirely in large used French oak for 24 months, then transferred to stainless steel vats for 10 months before bottling, this full-bodied wine releases a beautiful bouquet of wild flowers, cherries and plum and offers up sweet tannins, a fine finish and great elegance. Ideal with grilled food, pasta and meat dishes.
2005 marks the first vintage of this wine – and only 1,250 cases were produced!
"The 2005 Gentile di Casanova (Sangiovese) is a dark, brooding wine packed with dark cherries, smoke, underbrush, leather and tar. There is terrific density, richness and energy, all of which come together in this stylish, generous red. The finish is refined and harmonious. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2013. "
