Tasting Notes

This silky smooth blend of Tuscan goodness is mostly Sangiovese with some Merlot and a touch of Syrah to round things out. It has a bright red fruit flavors, light tannins and a smooth finish that makes this wine incredibly drinkable. While delicious on its own, like most Italian reds this wine really comes to life with food. We suggest trying it with pasta, lamb or young cheese.

The Producer

Erik Banti

Erik Banti is known as the pioneer of Morellino de Scansano. He has been producing wines in the Maremma Toscana region in the south-west of Tuscany for decades. With a love and passion for native Italian and classic French grapes he has created his Spineto, a blend of Sangiovese, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. The 2 French varieties are aged for 6 months in barriques, while the Sangiovese matures exclusively in steel. The result is a round, smooth red with strong territorial characteristics with the charm and finesse of international blends.

Aside from being a visionary, Erik has had a number of careers. Before he discovered his true passion of winemaking, he was a race-car driver and also a golfer, at one time attaining Italian golf championships. Today he is recognized for being counted amongst the forefathers of the Maremma winemaking region. An appellation that was created in part through the vision and persistence of this man…Erik Banti.
