Gabbriccio

IGT Tuscany Sangiovese

Why produce Sangiovese on the coast, whereas French vines rule the place now?

Because Tuscany has always been the Sangiovese’s land, or better the “Sangioveto”, as the ancient farmers used to call it. It is here that Sangiovese can be expressed with the vigour often not achievable in Chianti.

The Gabbriccio comes out from an autochthonous Sangiovese Piccolo vineyard which favours fresh and fruity aromas, while the ageing process adds a particularly spiced complexity.

The sun and the clayey soil give the Gambriccio solid structure which enables the wine to be presented in purity and to support long ageing periods.
