Pettirosso Sangiovese Fonterenza 2013, biodynamic wine, pure Tuscany, fruity and nervy red. The little Pettirosso Sangiovese is a natural wine made in tiny quantity and is a young fresh, wild Sangiovese for easy drinking any time. Fresh red fruits, sour cherry, earthy, alive, zingy acidity, delicious red wine.

Fonterenza was founded by two twin sisters Margherita and Francesca Padovani in 1999. They started their life long dream with just 1.5 hectares which has now grown to 4.2 hectares so the production is still tiny. But small is beautiful and these two sisters make truly beautiful wines. Their lovely natural vineyard site lies on clay-limestone soils 420 metres above sea level with a South exposition 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. The Brunellos are sublime, rich nectars with minerality and depth.


1Reviews For Pettirosso Sangiovese Fonterenza 2013

  1. How good is this wine?


    It was a crepuscular December day with barely a glimmer of sunlight. Tales of floods and other terrors filled the news. At home in front of a wood-burning stove in candlelight we ate fusilli, with a sauce of chorizo, garlic, tomatoes, oregano and spinach. This Petti Rosso took us well out of the gloom; earthy, sour cherries and enough acidity to cut the spice in the pasta. It was so good; very more-ish too.
