VINO - 2019 SANGIOVESE (1L) - True Sangiovese produced from grapes grown on the highest peaks in Tuscany. Sacromonte or “Sacred Mountain” is a play on the name of their aged Sangiovese as it only has 6 months ageing in stainless steel to produce a fresher more exuberant young wine. Hence the ‘ino’ ending which is the diminutive in Italian which means smaller or little version. Fresh and vibrant with black currant leaf, red berries and a subtle earthiness supported by light spice and tannin structure. Sustainable farming. Volcanic soil.
OLIO - 2020 TUSCAN HARVEST - This is an intense, peppery yet smooth, very fresh artisanal Tuscan olive oil. Only 240 tins were available for Canada.
And yes, it’s vintage dated. The olives were grown at Potentino - a ‘Refugio Naturalistico’ where nature is preserved. The fruit is farmed organically, but the Olive Oil is not certified due to the cost of certification relative to the small quantity produced.
Comments from Alexander Greene & winemaker Charlotte Horton, owners of Castello di Potentino: "Potentino's oil is made from a blend of Olivastra Seggianese, Frantoio, Pendolino and Lecino olives. All are picked while the olives are still green or just as they are turning black at the end of October and in early November each year. We take all our olives to the press as soon as we can to ensure the highest quality oil we can. The olives are pressed at the award-winning press Frantoio Franci who cold presses all the olives in separate batches.
Includes grissini and truffle salsa to enjoy with your vino.
