A wine just like the producer: warm and cordial, passionate and convincing. In the glass, there's plum, blackthorn, fresh cherry, served with menthol, some clove and leather. Fresh acidity, intense and powerful body, always elegant. This is noble in the best sense and with both feet firmly on the Tuscan ground. 80% Sangiovese (Prugnolo Gentile) with 20% Canaiolo and Mammolo, spontaneously fermented in cement and stainless steel, then matured for two years in large oak barrels - a real treat!

There are people with convictions and there are people who live by them. And then there is Dora Forsoni. Perhaps no wonder, when you are the youngest of nine children. One thing the 70-year-old makes clear immediately: "I drink my wine first and foremost myself. The wine, that is Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, which Dora presses together with her partner Patrizia Brogi on Poderi Sanguineto I e II in southern Tuscany. The grape varieties for this, Prugnolo Gentile (the local synonym for Sangiovese), Canaiolo and Mammolo, are grown by the two of them on just six hectares land. To this is added some white wine. Dora is out and about in their vineyards every day, working with a careful eye and sure hand. Even as a little girl she helped her father in the same vineyards. Her calloused hands are proof of this. Dora embodies peasant knowledge of nature and the Vino Nobile like no one else, that it is a real pleasure to listen to her. She does not dwell long on technical details. The work in the cellar is simple: manual harvest, spontaneous fermentation, no temperature control. Dora says she makes a single red wine, but three different interpretations of it. The only difference is the time the wine is aged in large wooden barrels - one year for the Rosso, two years for the Vino Nobile, three years for the Riserva. Basta. The estate, or rather the estates - namely Sanguineto I and Sanguineto II - were inherited from her father. The reddish clayey soil, called Terra Rossa, on which all her Sangiovese grows, is striking. The name "Sanguineto" (sangue means blood in Italian) is derived from this soil. Legend has it that in ancient times there was a battle here between Romans and Etruscans - and the blood spilled coloured the soil red. In any case, it gives Dora's wines a lot of depth and spiciness and also sticks very well to her shoes. A visit to Sanguineto is definitely worthwhile. If you are lucky, you will not only be able to enjoy the wine, but you will also be served olive oil from their own harvest or wild boar salami from their own production. Because Dora goes hunting in her vineyards herself, of course. Because not only the grapes, but also the wild boars feel at home here. Dora's wines are like her - robust, full of conviction, and real originals from Montepulciano. And we're very proud to have them in our range.
