Noelia Ricci Il Sangiovese 2018
The modern Noelia Ricci story began at Tenuta Pandolfa in 2010. It was Giuseppe Ricci who renovated the property after its occupation by the Nazis during WW2 and his daughter Noelia continued the revival with new plantings and a winery in the 1980s. Now Giuseppe's grandson, Marco Cirese, is picking up the threads.
The farm is at the foot of the Tuscan-Emilian Apennines, itself a small cru, 200-340 metres above sea level and within the Predappio sub-zone.
Il Sangiovese is just that, a beautifully pure expression of the grape from this historic region.
