Details

Pettirosso Sangiovese Fonterenza 2018 biodynamic red wine, 100% Sangiovese, pure sour cheery, vibrant red appearance, bags of fruit and fresh acidity, superb summer red wine. The average age of the vines is 35 years but some of the fruit comes from Sangiovese from the old vineyards on Monte Amiata. The new vintage of this little belting biodynamic wine is an absolute winner. In the past, no sulphur was added to the wine and some bottles appeared a little unstable. Although the current bottling is still very low sulphur levels, the wine is pure, round, fresh, balanced and clean as a whistle. Cranberry, cherry and crunchy acid with plenty of body (Sangiovese can sometimes seem a little thin) and intensity to back up the acid. Simply lovely Tuscan wine, very classic but also very contemporary as there is no oak in the mix, (well some time in a very old barrel for half the wine but no oak flavour what so ever).

Fonterenza was founded by two twin sisters Margherita and Francesca Padovani in 1999 who had a life-long dream to make wine. They started out with just 1.5 hectares which has now grown to 4.2 hectares, though still tiny in wine terms. Keeping production small though means that these two sisters make truly beautiful wines. Their natural vineyard site lies on clay-limestone soils 420 metres above sea level and all the work is done according to biodynamic principles. In good years they use no sulphur at all and the wines often have that lovely vibrancy and life of wine that is unveiled from sulphur.
