      “Fuori Misura” Rosato Toscana IGT 2018 (BIO)

      Dark laughing pink. Strong berry nose, fresh on the palate, with beautiful Sangiovese fruit and the unmistakable character of the exceptional vineyard. A rosato that tastes of pure Tuscany and is an excellent accompaniment to Mediterranean dishes. SUPERIORE.DE

      "San Giusto's deeply-colored 2018 Rosè Fuori Misura is Sangiovese, Canaiolo and Merlot done more as a light-ish red wine rather than as a Rosè. It is also one of the most distinctive Rosès readers will find in Italy, or anywhere for that matter. Deeply-colored and full of flavor, the Fuori Misura has enough richness and sheer texture to drink well with just about anything. Far from an easygoing wine, the 2018 is endowed with real character and tons of personality." Vinous

      "Mid crimson. Earthy cherry nose with plenty of depth. Succulent, concentrated and with long, gripping tannins and with minerally notes. Proper tangy finish. Quite a triumph for this very hot vintage." Jancis Robinson

      "The 2017 Chianti Classico is rich, ample and beautifully textured, with all of the natural richness of the year on display. Super-ripe dark cherry, plum, mocha, spice and licorice infuse a decidedly dark, brooding Chianti Classico. A dollop of whole clusters adds freshness and perfume, but readers should expect a big, potent Chianti Classico with serious fruit intensity as well as structure. I would prefer to cellar the 2017 to allow some of the baby fat to melt away." Vinous

      “Le Baròncole” Chianti Classico Riserva DOCG 2016 (BIO)

      Le Baròncole Riserva from the excellent vintage 2016 captivates already in the smell by juicy fruit and continues this on the palate. Cherry, sour cherry, blackberry, very juicy and powerful in appearance, fills the palate completely, but always remains lively and elegant. Silky tannins and a long reverberation make you want the next glass. Maturity potential for several years. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Mid ruby. Fine, lifted cherry fruit nose and complex cherry and raspberry palate. Truly energetic and fiercely tannic and not to be touched for a couple of years." Jancis Robinson

      "The 2016 Chianti Classico Riserva Le Baròncole is a super-elegant, perfumed wine. Classy and polished, with exceptional balance, the 2016 has so much to offer. All the best elements of the house style come together in a deep, layered Chianti Classico that oozes with class. Super-ripe dark cherry, plum, lavender, spice and menthol build into the finely knit, delineated finish. In 2016, Baròncole is especially fine. Don't miss it!" Vinous

      “VinSanGiusto” Passito di Toscana IGT 2010 · in Gift Box

      Just 2,282 bottles per vintage make history: perhaps the best sweet wine in Italy must not be called "Vin Santo" because its high concentration means that it does not reach 12% alcohol.

      But this is also completely uninteresting, because these aromatic-spicy forest honey notes, this sweet fruit balanced by a fine acidity, and this wonderful spice that characterize this wine, need no official regulation. This is just delicious. Best with strong cheeses, with desserts - or you simply take a glass of it "solo" as dessert. SUPERIORE.DE

      "The 2010 Vin San Giusto is one of the best editions of this wine I have ever tasted. A magical wine, the 2010 is captivating for so many reasons, including the way it delivers serious fruit intensity while also staying fresh and light on its feet. The 440 grams of residual sugar are not especially evident. Dried fig, dried herbs and chamomile shape the exquisite finish. This is an especially rich, concentrated sweet wine, much of that coming from six years in small casks and an evaporation of 30-40%. Stated simply, the 2010 Vin San Giusto is a total pleasure bomb." Antonio Galloni

      "This wine is classified as an IGT Toscana because Chianti Classico appellation laws require that Vin Santo has at least 12% alcohol. The 2010 Vin San Giusto only has 9.5% alcohol instead. These means you can count on extra sweetness and sugary intensity, and that is exactly the intention here. The blend is 90% Malvasia and 10% Trebbiano, and it ages for six long years in small barrels (resting on "mother" lees leftover from indigenous yeasts that have formed in previously used barrels and carried forward over the years). The wine pours from the bottle as if it were maple syrup, not wine. It shows super rich consistency that makes for slow and lazy movements as you swirl the glass. This wine is so absolutely singular it's hard to know how to score it, because it virtually has no equivalent. The bouquet shows hard candy, butterscotch, caramelized sugar, marron glacé and cedar smoke. The wine's drinking window is basically forever. A very precious 2,282 (375-milliliter bottles) exist, and I just tasted one of those unforgettable gems." Robert Parker

On the palate, silky elegance, juicy, dark berries, paired with an animating fruit-acid game, which lets the wine really dance over the tongue.

Ample and expansive on the palate, with huge textural depth, the 2015 is a total stunner. The darker, more muscular side of Sangiovese emerges in this gorgeous, absolutely stunning wine. Black cherry, lavender, spice and smoke overtones fill out the wine's big frame effortlessly. Proprietor Luca Martini di Cigala aged the 2015 in a combination of cask and tonneau.

      Sangiovese in purezza. Wonderfully spicy fragrance, dark wild berries and cherries, some graphite and cedar wood. On the palate, silky elegance, juicy, dark berries, paired with an animating fruit-acid game, which lets the wine really dance over the tongue. Percarlo has depth and length as well as a potential for several years in the basement. Big. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Very complex bouquet, opening with air, with a juicy, almost crunchy cherry fruit, followed by raspberry and a ripe blueberry fruit as well as leather, spice, smoke, tobacco, cherry stones and a hint of violet. Enormously gripping, widely staggered, deep and straight, but also with astonishing maturity for 2014. On the palate with a pithy juicy attack, almost wiry, the tannin is firm, handy and gives the powerful body (15%) hold. Impressive persistence that scores again with the lively freshness and the wonderful Sangiovese spice in the medium-length finale. Great performance and half the plus in a difficult year." Weinwisser

      "Sparkling, intense ruby. Intense nose, presents itself with rich, dark cherry, some blackberry and olive paste. On the palate juicy fruit, pomegranate and cherry, opens with hearty, dense tannin." Falstaff

      "The 2014 Percarlo is a pure expression of Sangiovese made from organically farmed grapes. This is a dark and penetrating wine that actually tastes riper, darker and thicker than you might expect of this cool and difficult vintage. The alcohol here is 15%. Black cherry and dried blackberry segue to spice, leather, tar and grilled herb. Despite those bold and opulent fruit flavors, the wine shows moderate complexity and depth. It offers a lot in terms of muscle and power, but it's ultimately more monosyllabic in this vintage." Robert Parker

      "Shows surprising ripeness for the vintage with black-cherry essence, tar, ash, cloves, bark, citrus, cedar and spices. Full-bodied, very silky and long and chewy on the finish. Tannic and muscular, this needs a lot of time, but it’s an amazing effort for a 2014." James Suckling

      "The 2014 Percarlo is one of the most refined young Percarlos I can remember tasting at San Giusto. A silky, polished wine, it makes its case with persistence and length more than power alone. Dark cherry, sage, tobacco and underbrush develop in the glass, but it is the wine's persistence that is most impressive. The 2014 was aged 70% in French oak barrique and 30% in cask. Over the last few years, the introduction of larger-format oak has added a level of finesse to Percarlo that is palpable. The 2014 is one of the stars of the vintage. Don't miss it." VINOUS

    About the winemakers
    San Giusto a Rentennano
    Tuscany | Chianti
    San Giusto a Rentennano

    The history of this exceptional vineyard is extraordinary even in Tuscany, which is now truly not poor in history. The name San Giusto a Rentennano testifies to its Etruscan origin. The oldest part of the splendid property was a monastery in the Middle Ages, first mentioned in 1204, later converted into a fortress whose towers and battlements still dominate the hills of southern Tuscany near Gaiole in Chianti.

    In 1957 Enrico Martini di Cigala inherited the farm and concentrated on wine and olive growing. Since 1992 six of his nine children have shared the work: Elisabetta, Francesco and Luca Martini di Cigala manage the 31 hectares of wine and 11 hectares of olives from a total of 160 hectares of land, including forests, fields and abundant natural land. Since 2001 the farm has been gradually converted to organic farming, first the olive groves, then the vineyards - and since 2006 all the land on the estate has been certified. Organic farming is lived here. Power generation from solar energy, own composting, consistent waste avoidance and recyclable packaging. Simply exemplary.

    The hills around Gaiole are among the most exciting growing areas in Tuscany because nowhere else are the geological conditions so varied. Every few hundred meters the underground changes, every few meters into the depth the vines root in different formations. From sand, loess and clay to volcanic rock formations, from calcareous soils to rocky rocks with argillites and calcium. Here one can actually speak of minerality. In addition, there is the unique, cooler micro-climate on the vineyards up to 300m above sea level, which are partly surrounded by forest and protected. During the day Mediterranean, warm breezes blow up from the nearby Tyrrhenian Sea, in the nights it cools down strongly by the wooded mountains. This interplay helps enormously to achieve the juicy fruit and a delicate and elegant structure of the wines.

    Since 1999 the oenologist Attilio Pagli has determined the style of the wines, supported in the cellar by the fabulous Anita Anichini and in the vineyards by the agronomist Ruggero Mazzili. Quality is rigorously observed in the vineyards, at least one third thinned out and harvested relatively late so that only physiologically fully ripe grapes are harvested. The batches from the individual layers are carefully fermented separately in the cellar only with our own yeasts spontaneously. And although the lion's share of the red wines is Sangiovese (sometimes with a mini-portion of max. 5% Canaiolo), here is never pepped up with international varieties, and yet the wines are completely different.

    Already the "normal" Chianti Classico differs from almost all others by its elegance. The Chianti Classico Riserva "Le Baròncole" is captivating with its fruit and depth and the already legendary "percarlo"A selection of the oldest vineyards with calcareous soils dating back to the Pliocene, the Sangiovese Sangiovese has been one of the best pure varieties in Italy for several decades.

    Beside the dominating Sangiovese there are still small vineyards, which were planted with Merlot. The Merlot di Toscana IGT is made from these single vineyard grapes. "La Ricolma"who can easily compete with most Supertuscans. In a few vineyards, Malvasia and a little Trebbiano are cultivated, from which the rare sweet wine, which is sold out much too quickly every year, is made. "VinSanGiusto" is pressed. The grapes are dried for about 140 days before maturing in tiny chestnut barrels (40-180 l) for six (!) years. Almost 40% of the quantity escapes. This results in this incomparable concentration.

    This unique style of the wines is reflected in the numerous international and Italian awards. And since there is hardly any well-known Italian restaurant that does not have the wines of San Giusto a Rentennano on the menu, there are unfortunately only very few bottles for the export. These small quantities are therefore always sold out quickly. SUPERIORE.DE
