Tenuta di Ghizzano- Il Ghizzano 2016

Smells of tart cherries and currants. This wine smells incredible lasts long and very pungent. The color is burgundy and is elegant. Off the sip this wine takes your regular wine experience away. Medium body with tremendous flavor. Tannin is prevalent with backdrop of currant. First ever organic wine.

My rating: 93/100

About Tenuta di Ghizzano:

The Venerosi Pesciolini family settled in the upcoming and esoteric Colline Pisane area near Pisa in the 14th century. For 26 generations, the family has been growing vines, olive trees, and cereals with a deep respect for tradition and terroir. Since 1996 Countess Ginevra Venerosi Pesciolini has run the estate, continuing the tradition of award-winning wines. Tenuta di Ghizzano became certified organic in 2003 and has employed biodynamic principles since 2006. 

Our aim is to keep investing in biodynamic agriculture and viticulture to offer the market limited quantities of outstandingly high-quality products, reflecting the inherent characteristics offered by these gentle hills. Respect for nature, the place that sustains us and the people that live and work here; these are the principles that our family has always observed in its management of the Tenuta di Ghizzano estate and has handed down through the generations.”  — Ginevra Venerosi Pesciolini, Winemaker and Proprietor
