Tuscan Sangiovese wine arises with a long, gentle maceration of about a month aimed at exalting all the noble components of the grapes, picked at the perfect phenolic maturity in order to exult the particular qualities of this Tuscan Sangiovese wine: this is why Vigna dell’Impero is a unique wine.

“Lovely acidity to this. Long and thoughtful wine. All about length and beauty. Pure old-vine sangiovese.”
James Suckling

“Ample and intense, while still maintaining a good deal of Sangiovese translucence, the 2013 exudes richness and pedigree.”

“It is a gorgeous expression of Sangiovese. I am impressed. The 2013 vintage offers a very smooth and silky approach.”
