Montedassi, Il Borghetto 2017
This is the more powerful wine of Il Borghetto's two pure Sangioveses. Sinewy, muscular tannins give the Montedesassi considerable punch and drive. Like all of these wines, the Montedesassi is quite perfumed and savoury in style.
Harvest by hand. Each block is fermented, pressed, racked and aged separately. Use of whole clusters. Natural yeast. Hand plunged no pump-overs. Long fermentation maceration-on average 40days. Free-run and pressings kept together. Wines racked and barrelled down with minimal settling. No racking during ageing.
The Azienda AgricolaIl Borghetto do things differently int his most well known and established region of Italy. Led by English winemaker Tim Manning who cut his vinous teeth with vintages in Oregon, there is a determination to show the potential of the region. As a result he is at odds with the Consorzio of Chianti Classico over his methods and approach.
