Liano

70% Sangiovese Grosso, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon

The character of Sangiovese and the fascination of Cabernet Sauvignon together yield an intense wine, with scents of sour black cherry and subtle hints of vanilla and spice.

Interesting facts
During a 2005 trip to Bologna, writer John Grisham was so taken with Liano that he mentioned it in his book, The Broker, calling it a fantastic wine
This blend of Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon, grown in vineyards averaging 15 years of age and yielding 75 quintals per hectare, is a wine of superb complexity and character. It ferments in specialised temperature-controlled tanks, with a lengthy maceration on the skins, followed by 18 months in 550-litre Allier oak casks and a further 6 months bottle-ageing.
Appearance: Intense ruby red with garnet highlights.
Bouquet: Generous and full, redolent of ripe berryfruit and sour black cherry preserves.
Palate: Intense, smooth, and elegant, with appetising tannins and fine balance. It opens to crisp sour cherry, and concludes on a whiff of blackpepper on a lengthy, well-proportioned finish.

              Where an icon is born

              Sandy-limestone soils, exposure to the sun’s rays from dawn to dusk, and the elevation of these hills inspired Umberto Cesari to plant here the first Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards.
