Quick Facts

Petrucci possesses the most silky tannins we're ever encountered in Sangiovese. This wine does have immense concentration of fruit as well, but what impresses us even more is the lofty acidity and sincere minerality, kicking in on the back palate. This is truly a remarkable wine!

The Wine’s Story

When we first tasted this wine, we were floored by its intensity, age-worthy structure and staying power, so beautifully counterbalanced by freshness and minerality. 100% Sangiovese, the Petrucci borrows the historic name of the Podere. An old vine close to a hundred year-old oak was revived as the symbolic mother of the grapes that produce this brilliant ruby red wine with an intense bouquet of cherry and raspberry and a mineral finish. The Petrucci is unforgettable, just like the lands from which it was born.
