Fantini Sangiovese 2018
|Region||Italy, Abruzzo, Terre di Chieti|
A youthful and appealing wine, garnet red in colour and quite intense on the nose with vibrant red fruit, cherries and herbal characters. On the palate it has bright fruity notes of strawberry and morello cherry, with subtle vanilla characters from the oak-aged portion. The wine is well-balanced and medium-bodied with structured, firm tannins, fresh acidity and a long finish.
Sweet wood spice pervades on the nose, driven by warm baking spice, tobacco and red berries. A soft, plush palate houses rounded cherry and berry flavors, with enough bright acidity and sandy tannins to lend support.
