Tasting Notes

When a wine journalist proclaims a wine as ‘delicious, delicious’ delicious’ and with the ability to revive a flagging soul after tasting hundreds of wines, it’s time to look sharp! This is Toby’s second multivintage release. Unorthodox for the region perhaps, but when it’s this good, who cares! 63% Sangiovese, 18% Cabernet Franc, 11% Merlot and the remainder indigenous varieties – it’s medium-bodied, with gorgeous blood orange, pomegranate notes, hints of graphite, tea and soft leather. Just the right amount of polish, with wonderful freshness. Certainly not a big wine, but a great wine!

The Producer

Coste del Vivo is the personal project of winemaker Toby Owen. 20 years ago, he was manager of a wine shop in Scotland, dreaming of one day being able to make wine like the best of those he sold. In 2009 a chance meeting led to experience working with Brunello producer San Polino in Montalcino. Later, in 2012 he returned to Montalcino as winemaking assistant at Casa Raia. By the following vintage he was winemaker for micro-producer Hortulanus in the beautiful vineyards of Seggiano on Monte Amiata, and it’s here he began producing his own range of fabulous wines.
