Poderi dal Nespoli Il Nespoli Sangiovese di Romagna Superiore Riserva 2015
- Region: Emilia-Romagna, Italy
- Grape: 100% Sangiovese
- Style: Rustic & Classic
This Sangiovese has an intense red ruby color and demonstrates a well-structured and ripe character. It is a wine of great complexity combining typical marasca cherry, blackberry and plum notes of the Sangiovese variety together with notes of licorice and roasted coffee beans which come from the aging in French barrique, following by stainless steel tanks. A touch of vanilla is coming from the wise but modest use of American oak. Soft and warm, with well-balanced tannins, it has an excellent potential for ageing.
Sangiovese di Romagna
The region of Emilia Romagna in northern Italy is known for Lambrusco, but if you’re a lover of Sangiovese, then this region needs to be on top of your list as well. The acidity in the Sangiovese of Romagna is lower than those of Tuscany, but with higher alcohol and tannins that are sweeter. The Sangiovese of Romagna still has juicy, cherry flavors along with herbal characters. Grippy tannins are highlighted with dark chocolate and smoke flavors. Hints of oregano in the aftertaste make this wine taste savory from start to finish.
Venison, game, beef stew braised with Nespoli wine, grilled T-bone steak, seasoned hard cheese. Our favorite food pairing is pumpkin ravioli with butter and sage sauce, fillet mignon with balsamic glaze, ragu bolognese, and Prosciutto di Parma.
