Tasting Notes

"Intense underbrush aromas, black berries and violet lead the nose on this delicious blend of 85% Sangiovese, 10% Merlot and 5% Ciliegiolo. The juicy palate offers a core of ripe black cherry accented with notes of tobacco, black pepper and orange peel; minerality and a hint of coffee bean add depth. It's is an incredible value."

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.
