This wine is off-dry with overripe jammy black cherry, blackberry, plum and hints of mandarin orange. A perfect pair with a hearty dish like quinoa stuffed bell peppers or mushroom, zucchini veggie burgers.
Grape: 100% Sangiovese
Quote from Tannintime: "Today I don’t want to write about wine. I want to describe Eraldo Dentici’s wines through the images. An eclectic winemaker who produces wines with a strong drinkability and character, convinced that wine should be drunk daily."
Eraldo’s wines are made naturally and you can taste his spirit in them. I feel as if nature gives him high-temperature days to create grapes that are bold because she knows he will balance all his wines perfectly!
Eraldo’s winemaking – from the day he handpicks the grapes to the day he feels his wines are ready to be bottled – is all about working side by side with nature to produce great wines. His wines are truly a natural work of art made with almost zero intervention. He avoids using any extraneous products – only a tiny amount of sulfites in his winemaking. They don’t wear gloves, add yeast, or impose any temperature control during the process.
According to Eraldo, “Wine is a pleasure, and for that reason, it has to be good and healthy.” We can definitely get on board with that statement! You can learn a bit more about Eraldo and his winemaking techniques in this interview.
Eraldo Dentici use organic practices when producing their wines.
