WINE OF THE MONTH
2020 Toscana Rosato ‘JeT’
With summer fully arrived here in the UK, there is no better time to enjoy some thirst-quenching rosé.
Biondi-Santi are most well known for their imperious Brunello, but Jacopo Biondi-Santi, son of the late Franco, also uses this famous clone of Sangiovese, BBS11, to make a delectable rosé (rosato) for his estate, Castello di Montepò, the 2020 Toscana Rosato ‘JeT’.
This is an excellent summer steal at just £12 per bottle in bond and ready for immediate delivery.
“Made entirely with Sangiovese and from the Biondi Santi BBS 11 clone, this radiant, medium-bodied rosato offers heady aromas of forest berries and cedar with whiffs of Mediterranean herbs. On the savory, tangy palate, mouth-watering acidity accompanies strawberry compote, orange zest and fennel.”
92 points – Kerin O’Keefe (Wine Enthusiast)
