Villa di Geggiano Toscana Bandinello
The backbone of this rosso is Sangiovese grown in the Chianti Classico zone, just north of Siena. Combine that position in the warmer southern end of the region with Villa di Geggiano’s south-facing vines, which soak up an abundance of sunlight, and you get some powerful, concentrated Sangiovese. To balance that robust character in this bottling—meant more for festive imbibing—the Bandinelli brothers add a generous splash of Ciliegiolo, a Tuscan variety that lends the rosso juicy exuberance. They also blend in some Syrah, which gives the wine a little savoriness and hint of pepper. The result is a Tuscan red that is immensely joyous and approachable in its youth.
