This is Sangiovese from the heart of the Chianti Classico region. Sangiovese can often achieve incredibly deep and rich wines. Although English winemaker, Tim Manning, has coaxed out the more pretty and floral notes of this noble grape variety. So we get a very beautiful, perfumed expression of the region, one that almost has a kind of Pinot Noir-like quality with a core of soft red fruit. It's still certainly Sangiovese, and it's still got that wonderful acidity, and tannic structure, it's just a bit more gentle and lovely, rather than brash and powerful.
Great service and excellent wines
Excellent service and excellent wines. I wanted a selection of six wines and asked Peckham Cellars to make the choice for me based on a price range. The wines were all superb and unique in that they were from small suppliers that I personally would have no knowledge of. If you want something different at your next dinner / party then I can't recommend these guys enough.
Super-speedy delivery! My wines arrived safe and sound in fully recyclable packaging. A real bonus. Website has such a great selection it was hard to choose.
I placed my order online from…Melbourne
I placed my order online from Melbourne Australia and the delivery of my birthday gift to a friend in London happened smoothly, quickly and well presented. Big thanks to the team at Peckham Cellars
Nice wine. Easy and efficient
Great for sending to friends as gifts/congratulations. You can include a message with the wine, so ideal really. Fun range of interesting wines.
