This wine is obtained from the Sangiovese Grosso di Romagna, and made according to an ancient tradition, but with a hint of modern technology. It is aged for three to four years, two of which in oak casks, then in glass. It was the first Sangiovese to be aged in Romagna. It has a pleasant, lively aroma with a hint of violets, a dry taste, full of flavour with a well-balanced and long-lasting almondy finish.

The producer

La Fattoria Paradiso manages 50 hectors of vineyards on limestone-rich land - land steeped in wine-making tradition. The vineyards are situated at a medium altitude on the foothills of the Tosco-Romagnolo Apennines. They benefit from a congenial climate and the loving care that Mario Pezzi lavishes on the vines. The result of this care and attention is the best "cru" wines of the region. These wines are obtained from carefully chosen species of vines, such as Barbarossa or Pezzi, which dates back to 1955 and led to the company winning D.O.C. status. The origins of other species, such as Pagadebit and Cagnina, are long forgotten. In the early 1970s the company won further recognition for the purity and longevity of Sangiovese Vigna Lepri. Until this time the Sangiovese species of grapevine did not have a reputation for longevity - so much so that it was dubbed an Easter wine by the national press. In the summer of 1979 five thousand bottles "Lepri Vine" were stowed away. When they returned to the light in June 1985 they were greatly appreciated. Overwhelmed at the congratulations he received, Mario Pezzi claimed that the credit was due to the roses, which flower every year on the estate.

Best with

This wine is a harmonious accompaniment to roast meats, game and wild fowl.

How to serve it

It is advisable to decant the wine into a large crystal carafe in order to allow it to breathe and so that its full roundness can be appreciated. It should be served at 16-18 centigrade degrees. The best glasses are plain, clear, smooth crystal goblets.

How to keep

If kept well, it has an average life of five to eight years. The bottles should be laid horizontally in a dark, humid wine cellar at approximately 12-15 °C.
