Tenuta Casali, Bassamarea Rosso, Sangiovese Rubicone, 2020

From vineyards on the north-east side of the Apennines in Emilia Romagna, this is a bright, young, country wine. Fresh cherry perfume, all cherries and red berries with a little fat. Juicy Sangiovese, quite gluggable, but with a nip of tannin so could stand up to a pizza. Could be served cool. Drink this year

The Casali family's organically farmed (in conversion) vines lie on the north side of the Appennines south-east of Bologna. This wine, named after its vineyard, is from Sangiovese grown on white clay affected soils and, given six months in large, old Slavonian oak vats. It's authentically Italian in its wild rusticity.

More delicious wine from Stone Vine and Sun. Highly recommended.
