2018 I Vini di Giovanni 'Il Rozzo' Sangiovese
Giovanni Messina is a Sardinian native who settled in the Umbrian hills to make wine, grow olives and raise sheep. It’s a very natural way to live – off the land, without any external inputs. The same philosophy feeds into his winemaking, which is equally traditional and naturalistic.
The Il Rozzo is Sangiovese made without any additions including sulphur. There’s such a purity and energy to the wine with floral and red fruit flavours. It should be drunk in one sitting quickly with great food and friends.
