Le Fonti - La Lepre Delle Fonti, Panzano-in-Chianti, Italy (2019)
La Lepre shows wonderful aromas of cherries, plums, blueberries and blackberries, but also delicate spicy notes of pepper, juniper and liquorice. On the palate the wine is soft with fine tannins, elegant acidity and well integrated flavours. An excellent food wine with pizza or pasta!
The house wine of Fattoria Le Fonti is named after the rabbit - the "Lepre", which is depicted on the label. Pressed from Sangiovese grapes with a touch of Merlot to soften the palate. Harvested by hand with fermentation in stainless steel tanks to preserve the fruity aromas. The La Lepre then matures for eight months in used French oak barrels - after which the "young hare" is bottled.
