2014 SANGIOVESE, Elki. Elqui Valley, Chile
Alcohol Percentage: 13.5%
Area: Elqui Valley is the northernmost valley in Chile. Logically that would mean the hottest, but cool Pacific ocean breezes make it a relatively cool area
Grape Variety: Sangiovese (the key Tuscan grape) made without wood ageing to emphasise freshness and the grape's natural fruit flavours
Producer: Falernia is the only winery in Elqui, although others have planted vineyards. Their inexpensive range of wines is branded Mayu. Owner Giorgio Flessati makes a number of very European styles. This is clearly richer than an Italian Sangiovese but does have savoury, spicy complexity
