2013 Tenuta di Ghizzano Veneroso
A longtime favorite producer of our, Tenuta di Ghizzano, just south of Pisa.
Veneroso is the historical and most representative wine of the estate. It was first produced in 1985 and since then its elegant, ripe fruit and mineral content has interpreted the characteristics of the soil where it is born. Made mainly from Sangiovese with a small percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon, it has become a point of reference for the winegrowing area where it originates.
Vinous / Antonio Galloni - 94 points
The 2013 Veneroso is one of the most compelling wines I have tasted from
Tenuta di Ghizzano. Powerful yet weightless, the 2013 presents a beguiling interplay between the aromatic lift of Sangiovese and the darker flavors the Cabernet Sauvignon adds. Sweet tobacco, licorice, dried herbs, tobacco and menthol wrap around the striking, delineated finish. The 2013 is 70% Sangiovese and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon. The Sangiovese is so expressive here, I can only wonder what it might be like on its own.
