Pianirossi Solus (750ml)
Stefano Sincini established Pianirossi over thirty years ago in southern Tuscany’s Maremma region. Today it is a 40 acre estate producing sought after wines and a charming old farmhouse converted to a boutique hotel. The wines are produced under the lead of Carlo Ferrini, an important oenologist working with many Italian wineries and abroad.
Solus is one of Pianirossi’s Supertuscan blends of 45% Sangiovese, 45% Montepulciano and 10% Alicante. The wine ages 12 months in French barriques. Deep purple/red colour with a pronounced bouquet of wild berries and savoury spice. Full and round on the palate, with good structure supporting ripe fruit from start to finish.
The 2012s from the Maremma are big, rich and radiant wines.
