Cellar for 3 to 5 years. It benefits from decanting.

The San Giovenale winery, whose name derives from an Etruscan necropolis near the company, is located in north Lazio, 400 m above sea level, a unique place that allows pre-industrial viticulture, thanks also to the dry climate that avoids vine diseases. The estate was founded in 2006, by Emanuele Pangrazi, who gave life to the most ambitious and technologically advanced project in the province of Viterbo, together with his oenologist Marco Casolanetti.

The focus is on some typical French varieties: Grenache, Cabernet Franc, Syrah, Carignan. The cultivation is intensive, with an average of 11,000 cuttings per hectare and low yields, to extract from the grapes the strong aromas and flavors typical of this territory.

The Rosso di San Giovenale is the assembly of two vintages of Habemus (the winery’s flagship wine), a blend of Grenache, Syrah, and Carignan. In the glass it shows the violent purple hues of the Syrah. The nose is deep and intense, a triumph of sweet spices, black pepper and anise, and fruity notes of plum, currant, and raspberry. A soft balsamic note and a hint of aromatic herbs complete the olfactory palette. The mouth is dense but lively and dynamic thanks to a surprising acidity in balance with the refined tannins. It is warm and complex with a long aftertaste of spices and balsamic notes.

Let it breathe for half an hour. Enjoy it with grilled red meat.
