A lovely thing to drink, and unique perfumed expression of Sangiovese with fabulous purity from the high elevation of the vineyards that evolves with time open, and is even better on day two. Quite crisp and nuanced with red currant coulis over thyme, meat juices, pomegranate and very fine tannins. With time open, or on the next day, the perfume dials up a notch as the fabulous floral notes emerge even more and the perfume becomes even more thrilling. It's a wine well worth having in the cellar or to hand to impress.
Located in the unique terroir of Modigliana, on the border of Emilia Romagna and Tuscany, Villa Papiano's vineyards are the highest in the area, planted on terraces between 450-570 metres above sea level. Their wines are defined by the estate's high elevation and steep slopes, ancient soils of marl and sandstone, and unique microclimates created by the dense forest that surrounds them. Farming organically, in a way that respects their incredible surroundings and winemaking with minimal intervention, the Bordini family focus almost exclusively on indigenous varieties and old clones. These are remarkable wines from a terroir that we're adamant will soon be talk of the town.
