Frederick Stevenson - 2020 Sangiovese

2020 Sangiovese

"Since taking this vineyard on in 2017, I’ve been taken by its ability to provide very elegant, cool climate fruit expression from the nose and into the mouth, but carry present and tight Sangiovese tannin and spice to make it a compelling drink. The addition of the Ceravolo vineyard is to provide complexity through the different clones and site expression, adding a touch more tannin and spice. 

2020 was a challenging, dry & hot start to the growing season, which then gave way to a rather mild summer which resulted in smaller crops with great fruit characters and acidity. Picked during lockdown with friends and family." – Frederick Stevenson
