SAN GIOVENALE 'Habemus' 2012


2015 TOP 100 WINES | Rank #54
The 2012 Habemus is a blend of Grenache, Syrah and Carignan, sourced from certified organic vines, planted in soils rich of clay and stones and benefits from the cool, dry breezes of the Tyrrhenian Sea. The wine itself delivers intense aromas of ripe blackberries and blueberries, layered with fresh lavender, violets, pepper, spices and wild mediterranean herbs which all come together beautifully in the glass. This possesses a full body with wonderful concentration, structured around polished tannins which lend to the luxurious velvety texture. It remains beautifully balanced with gorgeous touch of underlying acidity heading into the long finish. This is a phenomenal effort by Emaneule Pangrazi and consultant Marco Casolanetti that will continue to develop and show well for years to come. Emaneule Pangrazi has risen the bar for the quality of wine in Lazio. (Best 2016-2028) - March, 2015 (JD)
