"Prugnolo Gentile is a clone of Sangiovese that comes from the Vino Nobile di Montepulciano appellation. Giorgio Rivetti is doing a lot of work with this clone at his Tuscan property near Pisa. The 2013 Il Gentile di Casanova opens to a dark color with red copper highlights. The aromas are raw and genuine with black fruit, spice and rusty nail. The wine offers heft and power, although it does loosen up to show pretty elegance and silkiness in terms of mouthfeel. If you are hankering for an authentic taste of Tuscany, this wine will do.

Giorgio Rivetti wanted to flex his winemaking muscle and purchased a 65-hectare property in Tuscany between Pisa and Volterra in 2001. That same year he produced the inaugural vintage of his single-vineyard Casanova della Spinetta Sezzana (Sangiovese). Construction on the on-site winery was completed 2007, the same year La Spinetta in Piedmont celebrated its 30th anniversary. In 2009, he released his first vintage of Vermentino and continued converting over to organic farming."
