Winemaker Notes

Superbly rich ruby-red appearance. Very complex on the nose, with crisp fruit fragrances melding beautifully with earthy notes. The palate exhibits a solid structure with impressive depth, and a judicious equilibrium between alcoholic warmth and tannic weave. Very long tasty finish.

WS 90
Wine Spectator
A brawny red, featuring tobacco-tinged black cherry, plum and floral notes. Backed by a solid spine of tannins and bright acidity, with tea and earth accents on the finish. Sangiovese, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink now through 2018.

Renieri, Tuscany, Italy
Image of winery
Located in the prestigious Montalcino DOCG Appellation, Renieri is like a precious jewel in Marco Bacci’s treasure chest. Renieri lies southeast of Montalcino, on the southern border of the production zone facing Monte Amiata. The estate extends over 128 hectares of which 30 are dedicated to vineyards. Immediately following the purchase of the property in 1997, the old vineyards were completely replanted with six clones of Sangiovese grafted onto rootstock, following careful analysis of the terrain. Planted at an altitude of nearly 1,320 feet above sea level, the vineyards will surely benefit from the volcanic and calcareous soils. The property is in a splendid position, and the recently renovated main estate villa, made in stone during the 1700s, looks out over the vineyards and the valley where five massive, centuries-old oak trees stand as sentinels marking the center of the whole estate.

One of the most iconic Italian regions for wine, scenery and history, Tuscany is the world’s most important outpost for the Sangiovese grape. Ranging in style from fruity and simple to complex and age-worthy, Sangiovese makes up a significant percentage of plantings here, with the white Trebbiano Toscano coming in second.

Within Tuscany, many esteemed wines have their own respective sub-zones, including Chianti, Brunello di Montalcino and Vino Nobile di Montepulciano. The climate is Mediterranean and the topography consists mostly of picturesque rolling hills, scattered with vineyards.

Sangiovese at its simplest produces straightforward pizza-friendly wines with bright and juicy red fruit, but at its best it shows remarkable complexity and ageability. Top-quality Sangiovese-based wines can be expressive of a range of characteristics such as sour cherry, balsamic, dried herbs, leather, fresh earth, dried flowers, anise and tobacco. Brunello expresses well the particularities of vintage variations and is thus popular among collectors. Chianti is associated with tangy and food-friendly dry wines at various price points. A more recent phenomenon as of the 1970s is the “Super Tuscan”—a wine made from international grape varieties like Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Syrah, with or without Sangiovese. These are common in Tuscany’s coastal regions like Bolgheri, Val di Cornia, Carmignano and the island of Elba.

Other Red Blends

With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World, experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to enhance balance or create complexity, lending different layers of flavors and aromas. For example, a variety that creates a fruity and full-bodied wine would do well combined with one that is naturally high in acidity and tannins. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
