Intense ruby red in the glass, the charm of Mongrana does not take long to reveal itself. Well-defined aromas of ripe fruit, morello cherry, blackberry and blueberry especially anticipate notes of kirsch, ivy, pine needles.
As soon as the wine opens up in the glass, a more complex bouquet starts to emerge with slight hints of leather, coffee powder and cocoa enriched by a touch of liquorice. Juicy, fresh sip, with soft tannins. The long finale is savoury with mineral, iron notes that persist in the mouth.
On its own epic journey, Mongrana soon hailed to the “Top 100 Wines of the World” (Wine Spectator, 2013). Bruce Sanderson picked it again in 2019 and 2020 for the magazine’s “Top 100 Value Wines” as well as one of “8 Italian Reds at 90+ points”. From James Suckling’s annual “Review of Italian Wines” to topping The Drinks Business list for the Best Unoaked Tuscan Red, it’s no longer a secret that Mongrana offers an excellent deal to those seeking complexity and depth of flavours while delivering remarkable freshness and harmony. In the words of world-famous critic Antonio Galloni: “There is so much to like here!”
The grapes of Sangiovese, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon are harvested at the peak of phenolic maturation, each variety being treated individually up to the final blend. Following gentle fermentation management, the wine undergoes élevage in cement vats for at least 10 months, until it is ready to be blended and bottled.
