Sangiovese, Il Civettaio
Il Civettaio is a beautful farm in the rolling hills of the Maremma region (coastal Tuscany).
Everything here is done organically, and by hand; the owner/winemaker Gregorio is truly passionate about his farm and produces wines that really encapsulate the vivid, wild and beautiful landscape of the Maremma.
This 100% Sangiovese is full-bodied, like a wilder cousin of the posh folk up in Chianti; It also has some of the savoury characteristics from nearby Montalcino but without the price accompany it. A wine of real character and the perfect wine for pasta with meat sauce (wild boar if you have any lying around, otherwise ‘British Bolognese’ works fine..).
