A bright and juicy Sangiovese grown organically by Felsina in one of Italy's undervalued regions. The La Berta estate in Emilia Romagna was bought in 2009 by our top Chianti supplier, Felsina, who thereby realised a family dream of producing wine back in their original homeland. Here the focus remains on the Sangiovese grape, though this characterful and inexpensive version is made by vinifying in steel, which retains drink-young freshness and definition of flavour. An accessible style with real quality and pedigree, the La Berta is a treat for the barbeque or the table.

What The Critics Say

Winemaker notes on current 2017 vintage

"Vibrant ruby red. Redolent of wild red and black berryfruit, with fragrant impressions of spice, alongside earthy mineral and a hint of toastiness. Crisp, enfolding, and energy-driven, with glossy, fragrant tannins and a long-lingering finish."

Parker's Wine Advocate, Monica Larner (2016 vintage)

"The 2016 Romagna Sangiovese Superiore shows a dark and enriched appearance with dark cherry, blackberry, plum, prune and light spice. You also get a level of floral intensity with lilac and wild rose. This is a mid-weight effort that would pair with fried chicken or pork roast."
