Why do we love this wine?

Woah woah woah… let’s back it up a second. What’s this all about anyway? Well, mofo, ‘retromarcia’ is Italian for ‘reverse’ or ‘reverse gear’. You know, like, ‘I’m gonna have to reverse to get out of this alleyway.’ (‘Devo andare in retromarcia per uscire da questo vicolo’ - if you were wondering.)

The name spells out what they’re all about. Shunning these so-called ‘international grapes’ like cabernet and merlot which have been encroaching on sangiovese’s home turf in Tuscany. They’re out to show what the native grape can do all on its own, in the traditional style. Elegant, lithe, savoury and oh-so classic Chianti is the result. Bright red cherries, dusty tannins, cranberry and gravel and lashings of Tuscan sunshine. This is worth doubling back for.
