A vineyard ('wine farm' in South Africa) is a plantation of grape-bearing vines, grown mainly for winemaking, but also raisins, table grapes and non-alcoholic grape juice. The science, practice and study of vineyard production is known as viticulture.A vineyard is often characterised by its terroir, a French term loosely translating as "a sense of place" that refers to the specific geographical and geological characteristics of grapevine plantations, which may be imparted in the wine.

It has some grippy structure, but it’s not at all rustic, with keen acidity. The essence of fresh, structured Sangiovese, perfectly poised, but give it cellar time. 93/100 (£45 The Sampler) 12/14 …
