Prugneto Romagna Sangiovese Superiore bottle

From the quaint town of Nespoli (NESS-po-lee), this is the genuine expression of Sangiovese from Emilia-Romagna: fruity, smooth, with a bright ruby colour and red fruit perfume. In the mouth, freshness accompanies soft tannins, violet, cherry, and plum notes, with a long spicy aftertaste. Overall the wine is earthy, floral, and fruity with light oak, medium body, and the sort of fresh acidity that invites food. Prugneto (pru-NYET-oh) is the high-quality single vineyard that gives this famous red its name. Sangiovese is the most-planted red wine grape in Italy, with a superior clone called Sangiovese Grosso (big, thick-skinned berries), and that’s what gives our Prugneto its oomph. Tuscan wine lovers know this is the clone that makes Brunello so potent and distinguished. Emilia-Romagna is a large region in northern Italy, reaching from the Apennine mountains to the river Po. Its capital, Bologna, is one of Italy's great medieval cities, and a hub of gastronomy, with signature dishes like ragù Bolognese, which would be a fitting choice for Prugneto.
