My ‘lighter’ red looks like it might be a Super-Tuscan given its name, and in a way it is, but in fact it is simply a renamed Chianti Riserva. Winemaker Rannucio Neri decided that it should wear the IGT Toscana badge in order to give him more freedom from the regulators’ often constricting wine rules. Made from 100% Sangiovese this is a glorious and silky Tuscan red which belies its lowly price. I raise my glass to Neri because one sip was all that was needed for me to fall for this mesmerising wine.
