Short Runs → 2021 'San Selvaggio' Sangiovese.
Oh, Wild Holy One!
The sacred juice of humanity, the cult classic, is back in full colour.
Harvested super late in 2021, these grapes were by far the last harvest of the year. Wild fermented on full skins in stainless steel vat for 10 days, then transferred to old 300L barrels for malolactic fermentation. Matured in the same barrels on lees for 10 months before bringing together for bottling. Unfined/unfiltered and low sulphur.
This is made to drink now (can be served lightly chilled), but if you can, store a few bottles in a cool, dark spot for a little while. Over time, this wine will evolve into something more mature and plump. You won't regret holding onto some.
Light to medium and slightly broody with lots of deep rhubarb, red cherry and mulberry. Nestled between the dark and the bright; the first crack of dawn reaching out from the horizon.
A pensive and wise companion for all; young at heart, traditional in spirit.
