Fighting Gully Road 'La Longa' Sangiovese 2018


A reserve wine in every sense of the word. A single clone wine made from a clone sourced from the great Tuscan winery 'Isole e Olena'. Crazy limited production of 600 bottles!

"According to the maker, La Longa is a test of patience, with extended time in new and seasoned barriques, followed by more time in large 1600L wooden cask and, finally, bottle ageing before release. Strikes a wild pose, with baked earth, wild thyme, dried herbs, glazed cherries and Szechuan pepper. Supple tannins meld with warm, ripe fruit, but underlying it all is firm, toasty oak." 96pts - Jeni Port - Wine Companion

No insecticides are used and fungicide selection is careful made to protect predatory mites and other beneficial insects. Soil structure is maintained through minimal application of herbicide; soil cultivation is not practiced. The inter-row is sown to a permanent sward of grasses and legumes, which are seasonally slashed and thrown onto the ground immediately under the vine, to preserve moisture and increase organic matter. Vine prunings are mulched back into the ground to degrade naturally.
