Villa di Petrognano

Tuscany, tuscany Italy

Francesco Giuntini of Selvapiana rented this small estate in 1993. A blend of Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, this Pomino has a character that is distinct from all other red wines in Tuscany. His son, Federico Giuntini Masseti, now makes the wine with consultant Franco Bernabei.

The use of French varieties in Pomino dates back to the 1850s, when Vittorio degli Albizi returned from France to Tuscany to take over the family estate and brought with him cuttings from his favourite vines.

Villa di Petrognano's Pomino is deeply coloured and has a rich bouquet of red and black fruit on the nose. The palate is rounded and rich, with Sangiovese bringing lively acidity to the richer, blackcurrant notes of Cabernet and the supple tannins of Merlot.
