La Distesa Nocenzio

La Distesa Nocenzio


Country: Italy

Region: Marche

Grapes: Sangiovese, Montepulciano

Vintage: 2018

A roughly even blend of Sangiovese and Montepulciano planted over clay and limestone in Marche. The former is fermented with whole bunches, the latter as a ‘cerasuolo’, given merely the most gentle of presses to retain the grape’s delicate character and perfume. The wine ferments in old vertical barrels, before being pressed off stainless steel for a year. It is a lovely marriage of the two grapes, with bright cherries and a rustic, earthy character making for a wine of real charm.
