2019 Vini Di Giovanni Rozzo
The shepherd that makes wine.
So excited to have these in the shop. Giovanni Battista Mesina and his ancestors mainly raised sheep to produce milk, wool cheese and meat. Now, he's making wine as well. The vineyard land is tiny, as of 2017 only 3 hectares total. Vernaccia Rossa are the primary red grapes while Vermentino is the white grape of choice thanks to Giovanni's Sardinian heritage and pride that comes with it. This is 100% Sangiovese. It is made in stainless steel and cement, with no sulphur.
