Tasting Notes

Ruby red with purple nuances in the glass. The aromas are so complex, spicy with lots of blackberry and blackcurrant on the nose. There is also some mature prune and bell pepper. This dry, fruit driven wine is medium in body and is such a mighty food wine. It pairs well with of course the Tuscan classics dishes such as salumi toscani, pasta al ragù, hearty vegetable soups, grilled meats, semi aged cheeses, the list just goes on!

More Info

The grapes are crushed and macerate on the skins for 6 hours at 8° C. The temperature is then brought up to a controlled 28° C for fermentation for about 8 days and then a further period of maceration for 10 days. • Ageing The wine is aged on the lees for 2 weeks and then matured for 2 months in stainless steel tanks followed by 8 months in French barrique, after which it is blended and matured for a further 6 months in the bottle.
