      “Fuori Misura” Rosato Toscana IGT 2020 (BIO)

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

      "The 2020 Rosato Fuori Misura is one of the most distinctive Rosés in Italy. It is a blend of early picked red grapes vinified with no skin contact and a saignée from their other wines in the range. Rich, deep and layered, the Fuori Misura will appeal most to readers looking for a serious, deep Rosé for the dinner table. The purity of the flavors is just remarkable." Vinous

    • Chianti Classico DOCG 2019 (BIO)

      Chianti Classico DOCG 2019 (BIO)

      Multi-layered in the bouquet, lots of dark cherry fruit, delicate herbal spice and cedar aromas. Also on the palate juicy dark wild cherries, ripe, perfectly integrated tannin, elegant and delicate, fine mineral spiciness, yet amazingly full-bodied and animating. A representative of the appellation like out of a picture book! SUPERIORE.DE

      "The 2019 Chianti Classico is a deep, fleshy wine with a good deal of tannin that will need time to soften. The San Giusto Classico has a track record of aging very well. I have no doubt that will be the case here as well. Time in the glass brings out Sangiovese aromatics, but readers will have to patient here. This classically austere Chianti Classico needs time to be at its very best." Vinous

      "The organic San Giusto a Rentennano 2019 Chianti Classico is another excellent buy from a tight group of iconic Tuscan wine estates. This vintage, made with 95% Sangiovese and 5% Canaiolo, is pure and tonic in character. There are clearly etched aromas of blueberry, wild cherry, limestone and crushed stone. These are essential aromas to any traditional expression of Chianti Classico, and this wine delivers them with terrific simplicity and balance. Fruit is sourced from across a 30-hectare vineyard with south-facing exposures." Robert Parker

    • "Le Baròncole" Chianti Classico Riserva DOCG 2018 (BIO)

      “Le Baròncole” Chianti Classico Riserva DOCG 2018 (BIO)

      Le Baròncole Riserva captivates already in the fragrance with juicy fruit and continues this beautiful impression on the palate. Cherry, sour cherries, blackberries, very juicy and powerful in appearance, fills the palate completely, but always remains lively and elegant. Silky tannins and a long finish make you want to drink the next glass. Good ageing potential. SUPERIORE.DE

      "The 2018 Chianti Classico Riserva Le Baròncole is a deep, enveloping wine that will drink well with minimal cellar. Dark cherry and plum fruit open first, giving the wine tons of immediacy. The French oak, which was once a bit dominant in this bottling, is beautifully integrated. Lavender, spice, leather and dried herbs add attractive aromatic top notes with aeration. The 2018 is one of the finest editions of the Baroncole I can remember tasting." Vinous

      "The 2018 Chianti Classico Riserva Le Baròncole shows a distinctively Mediterranean or Italian personality with plenty of summer-fresh cherry, rosemary essence and lavender bud. This wine marks a break from the other beautiful wines in this estate portfolio, thanks to its ethereal freshness and lifted brightness. It finishes with silky, polished tannins. The soils see a mix of galestro and alberese with tufo and clay characteristic of this warm spot in Gaiole in Chianti." Robert Parker

      “VinSanGiusto” Passito di Toscana IGT 2011 (BIO) · in Gift Box

      Just 2,024 bottles that have it all: Perhaps the best sweet wine in Italy may not be called "Vin Santo" because its high concentration means it does not reach 12% alcohol. But that is also completely uninteresting, because these aromatic-spicy forest honey notes, this sweet fruit balanced by a fine acidity, and this wonderful spiciness that characterise this wine need no official regulation. It simply tastes delicious. Best with strong cheeses, with desserts - or just take a glass of this "solo" as a dessert. SUPERIORE.DE

      "The 2011 Vin San Giusto is somehow remarkably light on its feet for a rich, textured Vin Santo that packs a whopping 410 grams of residual sugar. Ginger, orange peel, spice, dried cherry and tobacco overtones give the Vin San Giusto striking aromatic intensity and nuance. Silky, plush and full of character, the 2011 is a compelling sweet wine to drink over the next 10-15 years." Vinous

      "This is an iconic wine with an iconic lineage. The 2011 Vin San Giusto (presented in a 375-milliliter bottle with a 9.5% alcohol content) pours forth with extra thick density and richness. You could almost stick a fork in there and expect it to stand straight. The bouquet is seemingly infinite, starting off with dried fruit and brown sugar and then moving toward earthy aromas with button mushroom. The wine's sweetness is so delicate but powerful at the same time. I suppose that is the magic of this 90-10 blend of Malvasia and Trebbiano: something so simple can in fact be so divine. This vintage shows a little less activity on the bouquet, but a wine this precious can perform differently bottle to bottle. Brown sugar and maple syrup linger on the long finish. The wine is aged in chestnut wood barrels force years." Robert Parker

But this is also completely uninteresting, because these aromatic-spicy forest honey notes, this sweet fruit balanced by a fine acidity and this wonderful spiciness, which distinguish this wine, do not need an official regulation. It simply tastes delicious. It is best served with strong cheeses, with desserts - or simply take a glass of it "solo" as dessert. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Wine is elevated to art when we consider the various Vin Santos made throughout Tuscany. This is most apparent in the stunning San Giusto a Rentennano 2012 Vin San Giusto, which opens to a dark amber color with polished copper highlights. The bouquet produces a never-ending stream of dried apricot, honey, prune, rum cake, button mushroom and brown sugar aromas. You also taste some of the cinnamon spice and vanilla essence that comes with prolonged aging in the tiny traditional oak casks used to make this precious wine. The wine is sweet, concentrated and syrupy on the finish. This is a true beauty." Robert Parker

      "The 2012 Vin San Giusto is incredibly refined. There is plenty of the richness that readers have come to expect from the Vin San Giusto, but at the same time, the 2012 is wonderfully precise and nuanced. Spicecake, tobacco, cedar and mint give the 2012 lovely aromatic complexity that gives the wine a remarkable sense of lightness for such a rich sweet wine. In a word: superb." Vinous

This sumptuous, dense sweet wine delivers the goods and then some. Amazingly, about 40% of the volume is lost because of dehydration over time." Vinous

      "An organic blend of 90% Malvasia and 10% Trebbiano, the San Giusto a Rentennano 2013 Vin San Giusto pours slowly and evenly from the bottle. The wine's thickness and syrupy richness recalls brown sugar and molasses. Those sweet flavors are elegantly contrasted against toasted nut and roasted chestnut.

      “Percarlo” Sangiovese di Toscana IGT 2017 (BIO)

      Sangiovese in purezza. Wonderfully spicy aroma, dark forest berries and cherries, some graphite and cedar wood. On the palate, silky elegance, juicy, dark berry fruits, paired with an animating fruit-acid play that makes the wine really dance across the tongue. Percarlo has depth and length as well as potential for many years in the cellar. One of the great single-varietal Sangiovese of central Tuscany. SUPERIORE.DE

      "The organic San Giusto a Rentennano 2017 Percarlo is a pure expression of Sangiovese from a hot and dry vintage that resulted in smaller berry size, richly concentrated flavors and a well-contained 15% alcohol content. Indeed, the bouquet of this wine shows warm cherry confit and a touch of dried berry skin that point to the general ripeness of the grapes." Robert Parker

      "This red is saturated with blackberry, black currant, violet, iron and spice flavors. Powerful tannins lend support and this finishes with lingering fruit and rustic tannins, with terrific length." Wine Spectator

      "The 2017 Percarlo is an exotic beauty. Rich and sumptuous in the glass, with tremendous fruit density, the 2017 packs a serious punch. Succulent dark cherry, plum, licorice, menthol and earthy notes emerge over time, but the tannins remain imposing. Like the Baròncole, the Percarlo needs cellaring to be at its best. The 2017 was much more forthcoming from barrel. It will reveal all of that sumptuousness once again, but not soon." Vinous

    About the winemakersSan Giusto a RentennanoTuscany | 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
