2017 Sangiovese Clone Wars – 6 Pack


We have had a very small and limited experiment at Red Feet Wines with three clones. We have selected two clones from the Italian nursery Vivai Cooperativi Rauscedo (VCR) – VCR 102 and VCR5. The third one was selected from the Matura gruppo, and is called MAT 7.

MAT7- Very lively dominated by red fruits, red cherry, clean acidity and soft tannins. Interestingly, the oak in this wine appears more vanilla than the other two.  This is more a drink now style of wine.
VCR5- The darkest, most brooding and intense of the three. More dark fruits, black cherry, tar, liquorice and a reductive brine character.   VCR5 will be the best for aging longer term.
CELLAR BLEND- Approximately 75% VCR 102, 15% MAT 7 and 10% VCR5. This wine lays somewhere in between with red and black cherry, smooth tannins and chocolaty oak

We have decided to bottle them separately so you can taste who wins the war! The six pack contains 2 VCR5, 2 MAT7 and  and comes in a standard 6 laydown box.
