Selvapiana Petrognano Pomino 2018
|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Pomino|
In the hills above the Sieve River valley, where Selvapiana and the rest of Chianti Rùfina are located, is a serene pine forest that holds the secret vineyards of Pomino DOC, owned by just two estates. Thanks to the friendship of Francesco Giuntini with the owner of Villa Petrognano, Cecilia Galeotti Ottieri, Selvapiana has had the opportunity to farm the villa's 13-acre plot for many years. The cool, higher ground here on the border between Tuscany and Emilia Romagna produces cool-climate fruit and delightfully crisp red wines. The Villa Petrognano vineyards are planted with Sangiovese, along with a significant amount of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, which are blended into this modern yet tradition-respecting wine.
Lots of black cherries, violets and dark wood, such as mahogany on the nose. Full-bodied with firm, chewy tannins that show plenty of structure and power. Really polished. This can age wonderfully and needs at least three to four years to come together.
