GOLD MEDAL 95/100 | NWWA 21
91 POINTS | Sam Kim, Wine Orbit "succulent and plump on the palate offering delectable fruit flavours combined with silky texture."
Paul Tudor MW writes "Lush and creamy to taste, that sweet oak is again evident, this is a seductive, generous, fleshy red to serve with rich foods, or the cheese course. If you like big Aussie Shiraz, or opulent Rhone reds, this is for you!"
Sangiovese is the spicy, middle-weight red wine that is most famous as the main varietal in Chianti. Vino Lascito is produced further north-east from Chianti, in the hills of Emilia-Romagna, and it is a lovely glass of wine. Vinted in a bold and fulsome style by sangiovese standards, the 2019 uses parcels of sun-dried fruit in the fermentation to bring added concentration and depth to the palate - and this is an awesome glass of red wine, modestly priced with great concentration and rewarding dry flavours.
Sam Kim writes "Youthfully attractive and beautifully fragrant, showing Black Doris plum, sweet cherry, almond and subtle spice notes with an elegant floral overtone. It's succulent and plump on the palate offering delectable fruit flavours combined with silky texture, making it immediately drinkable."
The importer writes "Smooth and sophisticated, this Sangiovese is bursting with ripe fruit flavours of cherry and raspberry, accompanied by a touch of spice. The wine has an intense ruby red colour, with a rounded and lasting finish. A full- bodied, well- balanced red."
