Tenuta di Ghizzano Veneroso 2015

14% abv

The 30th Anniversary Edition of the historical and most representative wine of the estate ( First vintage produced in 1985). Elegant, ripe fruit and mineral content has interpreted the characteristics of the soil where it is born. 70% Sangiovese e 30% Cabernet Sauvignon.
After crushing underfoot the fruit ferments in 3hl wooden vats with wild yeasts before aging for 16 months in 500litre oak. Fruit is organic (certified) and the vineyards have been worked with Biodynamic principles with accreditation from the 2018 harvest.

“The 2015 Veneroso, Ghizzano’s Sangiovese/Cabernet Sauvignon blend, is wonderfully inviting. Soft contours and radiant fruit add to its considerable allure. Hints of sweet tobacco, mint, crushed flowers and cedar add lovely savory character throughout. This is such a pretty wine.”
93 Points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous

“Unusually deep crimson for a Sangiovese. Richer than most Tuscan Sangioveses but with characteristic tang – could be no other variety. Plus a little bit of Cabernet structure. Very well judged. Neat and utterly satisfying with no obvious oak. Long and dry rather than rich. The alcohol has been kept well in check too. A lovely goblet of Tuscany with real refinement but no skinniness.”
17 Points, Jancis Robinson

The hill-top hamlet of Ghizzano lies in the Pisan hills, close to the Tuscan coast. The Venerosi Pesciolini family settled here in the late 14th Century and the estate now encompasses around 350ha with 20ha of vines. Vineyards sit within this gentle landscape at 200m above sea level and are blessed with a mild climate thanks to the maritime influence. Wine has been bottled since 1985, organically certified from 2008 and is moving in a biodynamic direction with concrete eggs a recent addition. The property is now in the hands of Ginevra Pesciolini and her wines continue to gain almost annual Tre Bicchieri awards. As a part of her philosophy of ensuring the wines represent their location Ginevra has also been reducing the amount of new oak in her SuperTuscan creations. Natural yeasts, pressing under foot and a move to using larger format oak are also integral to the style of the wines.
