Soft, fresh, fruity, velvety, tastes of violets and nutmeg. Medium/light body/colour. Soft tannins, a smooth moreish red wine.
The grapes used to make this wine are grown in Puglia, Italy, hand harvested then shipped by Renegade in refrigerated trucks at 2˚C direct to the London winery where they are then made into wine. Renagade state that 'wine fully made in London'.
Sangiovese is generally the principal grape used in Chianti however these grapes are grown a lot further south, in the heel of Italy in Puglia.

Who is Josh? Josh is a very interesting bloke. An army veteran who has overcome some pretty difficult and impressive challenges. A triple amputee due to an IED explosion in Afghanistan, Josh is an accomplished adventurer and qualified SCUBA rescue diver (yes, qualified after the accident) and also a prolific cyclist (using his arms). Just before the photo shoot for his label, he was involved in a massive bike accident in Mallorca. He went under a lorry when his wheel blew out at 25mph. This almost killed him, but he still made it to Renegade for a few photos and some vino!
