100% Sangiovese Piccolo. 2018 is Sanguineto's second vintage of rosato (2016 was the first and none was made in 2017). Dora rents and works these vines, not far from the home estate outside of Montepulciano, just as she does the home vines: by hand, purely organically, and with meticulous care. There are two main branches of of the Sangiovese family: Piccolo and Grosso. While Sanguineto's Rosso and Vino Nobile di Montepulciano reds are based on the superior Grosso (specifically in the form of the famous local Prugnolo Gentile), Piccolo is better suited for this deeply colored, direct-press, full, juicy rosato.
