ROSSO di TOSCANA
Indicazione Geografica Tipica
Our blend unites Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Merlot, Sangiovese.
The grapes are harvested by hand. The Cabernet and Petit Verdot are fermented together, while the Merlot, which ripens earlier, ferments by its own, the Sangiovese instead is added later.
All fermentations, rigorously temperature-controlled, take place in glass-lined cement vats, with frequent punch-downs.
Once the primary and malolactic fermentations are completed, the final blend is made.
The blend rests for 12 months in new 225-litre French oak barriques, after another period in concrete vats for a final settle the wine is bottled.
The wine shows a deep, youthful red, tending to ruby. Rich, well-ripened fruit is surprisingly intense on the nose, with compelling and seductive fragrances. The entry reveals a superb structure and a palate of spacious proportions, but one with a velvet-smooth tannin weave, rounded texture, and developed qualities that are still in vigorous evolution. In sum, a young, self-confident wine, one to be enjoyed tonight or one to consign to future dreams of a well-cellared, long-lived red.
Good with medium structured dishes, both white and red meat, cheeses with honey too.
