2017 Sangiovese Clone Wars – Gift Pack of Three Clones


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. We have decided to bottle them separately so you can taste who wins the war!

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.  I feel 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.  I believe 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

Comes in wooden gift packaging.
