“”””””Ali is a Sangiovese-based wine made of equal parts of two clones of Sangiovese: F9 and CH-20. The F9 Sangiovese clone contributes vibrant fruit qualities to the wine and CH-20 provides structure. After fermentation the Sangiovese spent one year aging in stainless steel. With the 2015 vintage, just before bottling, winemaker Francesco Rosi added some Cabernet Sauvignon from the Tolaini estate. The Cabernet Sauvignon, which aged in French oak for three months, adds body to the wine but Sangiovese is still the protagonist: its bright cherry and fresh vibrancy continue to shine through. The name Ali means “””wings””” in Italian and is also the name of winery owner Lia Tolaini-Banville’s “””little angel”””; her daughter. “””-Importer”””
