Il Gentile di Casanova Toscana Rosso IGT

Il Gentile di Casanova Toscana IGT

Refined, delicate, unique

Prugnolo Gentile is an ancient grape variety generally considered to be a Sangiovese biotype. La Spinetta has decided to vinify this variety in purity, in order to enhance its peculiarities. The scents are refined, with notes of plum and violet. The palate is ever so delicate, with less intense tannic texture present however quite similar to that of Nebbiolo.
