San Felice Pugnitello (6 Bottle Case)
This product is currently sold out.
Produced on 8ha of the San Felice estate from the ancient indigenous grape variety - pugnitello, meaning 'little fist'. It was rediscovered in 1984 in conjunction with the University of Florence as part of San Felice's intensive research programme.
Intriguing, classy and complex Super Tuscan from the obscure Pugnitello variety San Felice Pugnitello has an open, spicy nose with aromas of cedar, cherry, leather and wild fruit characters. The palate displays bitter cherry, mocha and a dried orange peel tang with a youthful sappy feel. The tannins are fine and evident yet well balanced with the fruit - to produce a well-structured wine which, whilst being delicious now, will continue to evolve over the next 5-10 years.
It's a big full-flavoured wine needing big, powerful food. Spicy stews, rich beef or lamb dishes, or classic Italian sausage work well.
