2019 Tenuta di Ghizzano Il Ghizzano Rosso Costa Toscana
With this delicious red wine, the Tenuta di Ghizzano wine estate has conquered wine bars, wine shops and restaurants around the world! This Il Ghizzano Rosso is made from Sangiovese grapes with a small percentage of Merlot that are mainly grown in the vineyards "Santa Maria" and "Il Monte". The vineyards are between 150 and 200 meters above sea level and are south, southeastern. The beautiful winery from beautiful Tuscany has really thought about this wine. The philosophy is: "to make a fresh, fruity, easy to drink wine that has all the lovely features of the local Sangiovese grape in sight." Well, you certainly did - you can taste it yourself.
Beautiful bright ruby red in the glass, the freshness of the fruit sprays out of the glass, but immediately we also smell oyster shells. The fruit is dominated by freshly picked dark cherries, spices and some soaked blueberries and balsamic. In the mouth, the wine is medium to full bodied with fine-grained tannins and a very elegant mineral finish. The Ghizzano Rossi is a wine that never bores and continues to surprise
Vintage 2018 received no less than 92/100 points from the famous wine writer James Suckling. He writes: "A fresh, fruity red with currant, blackberry and stone aromas and flavors. It’s medium-bodied with fine tannins and a polished, focused finish. Some oyster shell. Better after 2021."
The wine is also certified organic and has the "Suolo e Salute" certificate.
The grapes for this wine are always picked by hand and then carefully checked and selected. Fermentation occurs with naturally occurring yeasts in open stainless steel and / or concrete vessels for 12-14 days.
This red wine goes well with dishes with beef, lamb and veal and with poultry.
Tenuta di Ghizzano is located in Ghizzano, close to the Tuscan coast, about 40 km from Livorno and 40 km south of Pisa. The area is also called Colline Pisane (hills of Pisa).
