Mongrana comes from the Banditella, Podere Harras and Sugherettaia vineyards and has been 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.
93 points, James Suckling: “A juicy and delicious 2015 red with plenty of berry and chocolate character. Medium to full body, round tannins and a flavorful finish. A blend of sangiovese, merlot and cabernet sauvignon. Drink or hold.”
