2021 La Despensa Boutique Sangiovese - 90 PTS - TA

tim atkin logo 250"You can count the number of decent Chilean Sangioveses on the digits of one hand, so it's great to see the first release from Matt Ridgway's La Despensa project. Entirely unwooded, it's a faithful rendition of the variety, showing red cherry, tealeaf and redcurrant flavours and a nip of savoury tannins."

2021 La Despensa Boutique Sangiovese - 90 PTS - WA

wa90"The 2021 Wines Sangiovese was produced with grapes from vines planted in Santa Ana in Colchagua in 2018, and they think the variety adapts to most soils as long as it has sun and warm weather. They are happy with this first vintage produced in their style of fresh wines with good acidity and high drinkability. It fermented in stainless steel with native yeasts, and 60% of the volume matured in Flextank and 40% in used barrels. It has 14% alcohol, good grip, a Mediterranean nose and varietal typicity. 1,800 bottles were filled in March 2022. - Luis Gutiérrez"
