Fattoria Lornano is a famous estate in the region’s renowned Castellina in Chianti. The Pozzoli family have been making fine wines there for four generations. Here, with the help of top wine consultant Matteo Bernabei (son of Franco Bernabei, aka ‘Mr Sangiovese’), they have created a mouthfilling, decadently rich and complex Super Tuscan blend of Sangiovese, Merlot and Cabernet. It’s superb!
Aged for 20 months in fine French oak, and just hitting its straps now, this commanding red is incredibly rich and exceptionally powerful. Pour it into the glass and experience plush and vibrant Sangiovese with cherry fruit layered over inky rich Cabernet and velvety, plummy Merlot. Sprinkled with delicious mocha spice, all leading to a sumptuously long, textured finish.
