This is Torre a Conas first attempt with a Occhio di Pernice on Sangiovese after having done quite a few vintages of Vinsanto with Malvasia and Trebbiano earlier on, with some quite good results. The Sangioves vines grows on a soil rich of limestone 3-400 m above sea level, on the Florentine hills close to a town called San Donato in Collina, about 15 k southeast of Florence. This Occhio di Pernice has been ageing 5 years in small oak casks of 50 litres.
Try this variety of Vinsanto and you will feel some chestnut honey, candid orange, very mature figs and dades, that lasts for a very long time, all in a very elefant rounded manner.
This Occhio di Pernice is to be shared with a few friends, or in meditative contemplation on your own...
