Sangiovese The Way It's Meant To Be!
SHIPPING NOW

This is an Englewood Wine Merchants Exclusive! We are the ONLY retailer in the United States with this wine. Our first tranche is shipping now. And, if you miss out, a second tranche will be arriving mid-February. That's how much we love this wine!

Pretty. Pretty. Pretty!

The 2015 Bolsignano Rosso di Montalcino is what Sangiovese is supposed to taste like. The cherry is soft. The mouthfeel is silky. The color is translucent. But, the wine is textured and mouthwatering with young red fruit followed by dry cedar and mild spice. Lovely and balanced, elegant is an understatement.

As soon as you set down your glass, you will find yourself reaching for another. This is a traditionally made, old-school, Sangiovese. Not jammy. Not extracted. Very little wood is used. This is pure Sangiovese the way it is intended to be enjoyed!

Prepare your favorite red sauce dish - pizza and pasta will never be the same again! From an amazing vintage, we can't wait to see what the 2015 Bolsignano Brunello tastes like in two years, because this Rosso (Baby Brunello) is showing amazingly.

My pairing recommendation? A simple but flavorful dish - fedelini tossed in a plum tomato sauce with fresh basil! Freshly grated cheese as desired.

Delicious!

$26.95 per bottle / $323.40 per case

Pretty. Pretty. Pretty. Get your favorite red sauce. The cherry is soft. The mouthfeel is silky. The color is translucent. But, the wine is textured and mouthwatering. Dry cedar notes, young, mouthwatering cherry and raspberry. As soon as you put the glass down, you will reach for another sip. This is a traditionally made, old-school, Sangiovese. Not jammy. Not extracted. Almost Brunello-like. Pure Sangiovese the way it is intended to be enjoyed!
