From the Winery

“A grape most often associated with Tuscany, Sangiovese is like a chameleon. Few grape varieties have the capability of spanning such a wide spectrum of body, flavor and aroma. At Giornata, there are at least three wines every vintage that are Sangiovese dominated, though only one of them is 100%. In this version, we pay tribute to the exalted wines of the Montalcino hills.”

Winemaking

“Foot-stomping and extended maceration facilitate the gentle extraction of color and tannin from the small berried Sangiovese clones that comprise this lot. A 22-month aging in neutral French oak barrels and puncheons allows further subtleties and nuances to emerge.”

96 Points Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate – “The 2020 Vintage Tasting Notes: The ferrous nose foretells the seriousness of this wine that also shows floral components, black cherry, anise and white pepper. The palate has some tart black cherry with bay leaf, graphite and peppercorns. The finish is soft and persistent and will likely improve with age.”
