Case of 6 150cl bottles: £179.70



Sacromonte or “Sacred Mountain” refers to Monte Amiata which was the home of the gods for the Etruscans and the wine is named in honour of the volcanic peperino stone typical to the mountain and used in the construction of the Castle itself. An excellent Tuscan red from a small, family estate owned by Graham C. Greene that is really causing a stir in the Italian wine world. Made by the highly talented Charlotte Horton from 100% Sangiovese, it is wonderfully floral, spiced and elegant, as all really good Sangiovese should be.
