Giusti e Zanza Nemorino IGT Organic Rosso 2019


Hailing from Tuscany comes a smart, organically-farmed syrah with a splash of sangiovese (although just how big a splash isn’t recorded on the label). Recently, Tuscan wine laws were relaxed to allow a minimum share of 60% sangiovese (down from 70%) in any blend. Whatever the actual blend here, it works. Ripeness is the key (13.5% abv) which brings forth an easy harmony on the palate highlighting sweet earthy black fruits, black cherry, bramble, sage with a light savouriness to close. Generous, rounded and long lasting, it’s sometimes hard to see where sangiovese ends and syrah begins. Or vice versa. Both work so well together.
