WINE PROFILE

PIAZZANO
Ventoso 2011

Ventoso is delicious and a TREMENDOUS value.  Made from Sangiovese and Canaiolo, fermented in cement vats and aged for nine months before bottling.  A geological fault runs thru the Piazzano estate and exposes several soil types, each are vinified separately and blended before bottling.  For this base Sangiovese this is a significant quality measure that yields a great wine.  It offers complex aromas and great concentration.
