Case of 12 bottles.
This wine is made from 100% Sangiovese grapes sourced from estate vineyards in Montalcino, the source of the famous Brunello di Montalcino. The soils are light and stony, and well-draining, and the planting density is medium using traditional Spurred Cordon trellising.
The grapes were hand-harvested in late September, early October, when the reached peak ripeness and maturity. Vinification was in temperature-controlled, stainless-steel tanks for 15-20 days, then aged for a minimum of 18 months in large Slavonian oak casks, then in bottle until released to the market. 13.5% alc./vol., less than 1 gr/L RS.
Tasting Note: Ruby red in colour, with slight garnet tinges (typical of Sangiovese). Earthy aromas of wild berries and blackberry, with floral notes of herbs, mocha and baking spices. Medium- to full-bodied, and rich on the palate. Smooth tannins, with a long finish. It may need a few minutes to open up.
Menu Matches:Complements fuller-bodied foods like steak, braised meat dishes, and game. Also pasta with meat-based sauces, and pizza.
