Sanguinetto I e II IGT Toscana Rosso 2020

Product Description

100% Prugnolo Gentile. This 2020 IGT Rosso is a brand-new addition to Sanguineto's small line-up and an outlier in a few ways: it is their only IGT wine; their only one from a young plantation (2017) of Prugnolo Gentile; and the only monovarietal wine from Sanguineto. As for vignaiola Dora Forsoni's entire vineyard, the farming is organic and all work is done meticulously with her hands. And as for the other wines in this cellar, the berries are destemmed but kept largely whole; the fermentation is spontaneous with native yeasts in concrete tanks; and the aging is about a year in a mix of French and Slavonian oak botti. 

The "I & II" tucked discreetly into the estate name on the label is a reference to Sanguineto's mezzadria history: like so many Italian properties in the early 20th century, it was divided into blocks worked by sharecroppers--the modern-day estate consists of the old #1 and #2 blocks.
