Warm, Lively Sangiovese

Marco Ricasoli farms his vines using organic methods, a challenge in rainy growing seasons like 2018, but the well-ventilated position of his Gaiole vineyards, along with intense vineyard work by his team, kept the vines healthy. Geremia, a blend of merlot with about 20 percent of cabernet sauvignon, shows a beautiful freshness in this vintage, its red plum and raspberry flavors seamlessly woven with lively acidity. Warm spice notes deepen the flavors even as hints of wild herbs bring a Tuscan accent to the wine.
