Prepare to be stung! This wine is from Il Palagio, a 350 hectare Tuscan estate owned by musician Sting and his wife Trudie Styler. Named after the song by Sting/The Police, this is a punchy Tuscan red made purely from Sangiovese. Flavours of ripe red fruit are followed by sweet all-spice. The nose displays aromas of cherries, blackberries and dried herbs. Supple, fine tannins are balanced by light oak, with a refreshingly tart finish. 

The Il Palagio estate has been farmed on since the 16th Century! When Sting and Trudie first came across the estate in 1999, it had fallen into a state of disrepair. They restored the estate, and assembled a team to maximise the natural qualities of the estate, now operating on a fully biodynamic basis. Grape varieties cultivated here include the classic Tuscan red grapes Sangiovese, Canaiolo & Colorino as well as the more internationally renowned Cabernet Sauvignon & Merlot. 

This wine is superb with rich roasted meats, pasta, ragu and tomato-based dishes.
