Bodega Benegas 'Single Vineyard' Sangiovese

Bodega Benegas 'Single Vineyard' Sangiovese 2019

£26.50

Italian grape variety meets Argentine terroir.

  • Made from grapes planted in 1935 by the Benegas family on the Finca Libertad estate in Maipú, this might be an oddity but it certainly isn't a gimmick.
  • Deep garnet in colour and a bold expression of the grape in pretty much every respect.
  • Lots of wild red fruits, hints of cocoa and vanilla on the nose.
  • Firmly structured with a rich red fruit mid palate and excellent length.
  • Pair with hard cheeses or a mushroom risotto.
  • Grape variety: Sangiovese
  • Vintage: 2019
  • Type/Colour: Red
  • Alcohol: 14.5%
  • Bottle Size: 75cl
  • Group: Mendoza

The classic Chianti grape is thriving in South America. Typical sour cherry and rustic notes of Sangiovese are augmented with a rich, soft, plumminess that I find quite delightful. - Manda Joyce, OWC
