Garofoli 2019 'Monte Reale' Sangiovese, Marche, Italy

Winemaker: Carlo Garofoli
Farming: Organic
Varieties: 100% Sangiovese
Terroir: Diatomaceous earth and membrane filters, at 200-400 meters elevation. This wine comes from the hilly areas of Ancona, Macerata, and Ascoli Piceno. Sangiovese from this area is lighter and fruitier compared to other regions.
Vinification: Fruit is destemmed and pressed followed by a fermentation in stainless steel with skin contact for about five days. The wine is rack and undergoes malolactic fermentation. Held in steel for 3-6 months before being aged in bottle 3-4 months.

In 1871, Garofoli began making wine to quench the pilgrims’ temporal thirst, beginning a long family tradition. Thirty years later, his son Gioacchino founded a full-scale winery operation. The winery expanded commercially after World War II as Casa Vinicola Gioacchino Garofoli with national and European distribution beginning in 1950. The winery is now run by the fourth and fifth generations—brothers Carlo and Gianfranco Garofoli and their three children Gianluca, Caterina, and Beatrice. Garofoli today has four family-owned vineyards totaling 128 acres.
