A well-structured Super Tuscan that showcases beautiful acidity that is reflective of the terroir.
Deep ruby red with intense complexity. Filled with aromas of ripe red and small black fruit, cassis, chocolate and spicy vanilla oak. A long, well-defined finish.
A delicious pairing with grilled meats, hard cheeses, lasagna or pastas with red sauce.
- The vineyards are located in Riparbella, in Tuscany's coastal Maremma region, miles from the Tyrrhenian Sea.
- The grapes are deposited on a conveyor belt that moves them using gravity (to avoid damaging the skins) to the de-stemming machine where the leaves and stems are removed. From there, the fruit moves via conveyor belt to a filtering machine that gently breaks the skins to release juice as the grapes drop to fill conical-shaped stainless steel tanks. Temperature-controlled fermentation begins and juice is pumped over the grapes every 6 hours. After 2 weeks the grapes are gently pressed.
- The wine is aged 12 months in half new/half used French oak barrels and 12 months in the bottle.
