Fabbrica Rosso Toscana 2018 75cl

£18.95

Tasting Note: Mostly Sangiovese, with a touch of Syrah. Matured for 12 months in 75% stainless steel with the balance in neutral oak tonneaux. Pale coloured, aromatic with straw- berries and herbs, fresh and zinging with red cherry fruit, with soft tannins and medium body, this is delicious for drinking now.

Producer: Located in the heart of a new appellation,Tuscany’s Orcia DOC, between Montalcino and Montepulciano, Fabbrica forms an estate of 35 hectares of vineyards which have been farmed organically since the outset (officially certified since the 2019 vintage). Seasoned English winemaker Tim Manning, who studied and worked in New Zealand and then worked with Pinot Noir in Oregon before settling down for good in Tuscany, joined Fabbrica in 2020. His winemaking is arti- sanal and natural, including vinification in Nomblot unlined concrete tanks, gentle crushing by foot (foulage), long maceration in small open bins, whole bunch and manual punching-downs rather than pump-overs. The varietal approach is brave and different, with an avowed aim not to copy what has been made before, but to experiment and produce unique and orig- inal wines from an original, unique and rising winemaking area
