Tenuta Maiano - “Brusco” Toscana Sangiovese 2018 (750ml)

Project Fuso21: regional, terroir-driven, daily drinkers, from farmers we know here in Italy – from their vineyards to your table. These are like the wines you’ll find in a good trattoria when traveling in Italy, made from the native varieties that the locals drink. Keeping true to vini quotidiani, we choose deliciousness over complexity and polish. All are vinified in cement or steel, lightly or not filtered, and delicious. The project connects growers in small towns throughout Italy to folks just like us who don’t want industrial plonk for daily drinkers.

“Brusco” is still used in the Tuscan dialect today defining a person or thing that is off the cuff and a bit rough but genuine through and through. This is 100% Sangiovese made by one of our Chianti Classico producers, Tenuta Maiano from their certified organic estate fruit in Montespertoli, Tuscany. The estate is the classic Tuscan postcard: 55ha of gentle, rolling hills of vines (the so-called 'colline dolci'), interspersed with Cypress trees and olive groves, and an agriturismo that serves up local food and provides lodging. Soils are limestone with silt below composed of marine sand and clay. The fruit is all destemmed with fermentation and aging in old-school cement tanks with native yeast.
