Ciabatta IGT Toscana

by Erik Banti 2012

Producer : Erik Banti

Region : Italy (Italy), Tuscany (Italy)

Bottle Per Case : 12 x 750 ml

Tasting Notes

The 2012 Erik Banti Ciabatta IGT Toscana is essentially declassified Morellino Riserva. Meaning it is Erik's signature wine at a much lower price! Made from 90% Sangiovese aged for one year in 10-hectoliter Slavonian oak barrels. You're going to love this wine, it exudes flavor, and not frilly melted jello artificial flavor, but grapes, earth, sweet leather, raw meat and a touch of the Maremma outback. The most dominant characteristic, however, is its supple texture, remarkable depth and precocious power, which give the wine an awesome palate presence. This is such a good wine at this incredible bargain price.

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.
