“The La Màgia estate not only boasts one of the most dramatic vineyard panoramas in Montalcino, it's all about the spice, energy, and woodland savor of traditionally crafted Sangiovese.”

This small estate as being one of Montalcino’s great “traditionalists” but one with a wavering presence in the US market. The estate was founded in the early 1970s by Harald Schwarz, a native of the Alto Adige region who was blown away by Montalcino’s natural beauty; the La Màgia vineyards reach to about 450 meters’ elevation on the southeastern slope of the Montalcino hill, looking down at the famed Abbey of Sant’Antimo and the key natural landmark of the region, Monte Amiata, further to the south. 

The ”Il Vispo” is a flat-out drinker! A gorgeous, fresh interpretation of Sangiovese. One taste and we were sold especially when factoring the price tag. This is the newest addition to the La Màgia lineup. Light and lively, with all the vivacity of a youthful Toscana Rosso. The playful label design was inspired by the works of Banksy, one of the foremost exponents of graffiti and street art. This is the latest addition to La Magia’s range, made exclusively from Sangiovese grapes. Light and lively, with all the vivacity of youth, our latest wine is defined by its easy charm and immediate appeal, guaranteed to prove popular on all occasions. In the glass, the “Il Vispo” reveals aromas of morello cherry, leather, spice box seasoning, and crushed violets. Plenty of lively blackberries and dark plum fruit coat the mid-palate with hints of balsamico and earthiness. This is a multiple bottle pickup for Tuscan purists.
