Fattorie Parri Gigi Rosso Toscana 2020
Area: Toscana/ Tuscany
Grapes: Sangiovese/ Cabernet Sauvignon
Situated on the downward slopes of the highest hills of the Commune of Montespertoli, the territory lies to the south-west of Florence, in the area between two valleys Val di Pesa e Val d’Elsa; a chain of hills in an open and sunny countryside where cypress trees sway in the wind, ploughed fields lie close to woodland or alternate with vineyards and olive groves in a perfect harmony of space and colour.
Tasting Notes: Fresh, strawberry and sour cherry, dried herb, carne crudo with a little jalapeño (don’t mind me). Medium-bodied, lively and juicy, but savoury, with fresh strawberry and herb, a lick of dusty tannin, and a clean finish of solid length. I can’t quite emphasise just how nice, and interesting, this is to drink.
