Mongrana comes from the Banditella, Podere Harras and Sugherettaia vineyards and has been organically and biodynamically grown since inception. The first vintage was 2005. The soil is a mixture of silt and alluvial sand, with areas of gravel and surface pebbles that can be traced back to the Pleistocene.
A blend of Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Merlot. Intense ruby red in the glass, the charm of Mongrana does not take long to reveal itself. Well-defined aromas of ripe fruit, morello cherry, blackberry and blueberry especially anticipate notes of kirsch, ivy, pine needles. As soon as the wine opens up in the glass, a more complex bouquet starts to emerge with slight hints of leather, coffee powder and cocoa enriched by a touch of liquorice. Juicy, fresh sip, with soft tannins. The long finale is savoury with mineral, iron notes that persist in the mouth.
