Grown at the La Vigne Vineyard in Maremma's Montecucco region in Tuscany, this ICEA-certified organic vineyard has limestone soil with volcanic rock as a result of the Monte Amiata volcano eruption centuries ago. The area is cooled by winds from the Tyrrhenian coast that is about 70 miles west. This microclimate leads to wines that are fresh with rich fruit and notes of minerality and salinity.

The 2015 Saimuun Sangiovese begins with a sense of red plum, raspberry, violet, cigar box, and cinnamon. It then flows to more earthy tones including Porcini mushrooms and leather. The next layer of flavors unveil as mulberry, black fig, a delightful sour cherry, pomegranate, and cinnamon stick. Citrus notes of blood orange dipped in dark chocolate and grapefruit round out the finish with mouth-watering juiciness that brings you back for more. This wine has all the traditional Sangiovese qualities one expects. Dusty, musky, and cedar with firm tannins this 2015 Saimuun Sangiovese is Barrel-aged for 18 months.

    Perfect Pizza Wine

    Not the most complex Sangiovese I have ever had...but at this price point, I wasn't expecting much. I was hoping for red fruit, acidity, and a bit of minerality; and I found it. It holds up to pizza sauce perfectly, making it my go to pizza companion.

    Good, easy drinking wine at a great price

    We love this Sangiovese and try to keep a few bottles on hand at all times as our “table wine” at home. It’s affordable, easy drinking, goes with all kinds of different dishes. It’s not particularly complex but that’s fine for an everyday red.

    Saimun Sangiovese

    A fabulous wine, wonderful aroma and full, rich taste. I'm certainly not a connoisseur but love a good wine to accompany a special meal, and this wine was a perfect partner.
