Wine Type: Red Wine
Grapes Variety: 60% Merlot from Chianti, 40% Sangiovese from Montalcino
Region: Montalcino, Tuscany, Italy
Harvest: late September, begining of October.
Winemaking: after the crushing, the fermentation takes place in stainless steel vats at a controlled temperature, favoring prolonged contact with the skins with the must.
The malolactic transformation occurs in November, after the alcoholic fermentation.
Ageing Process: 20 months in used French barriques
Tasting Notes: Dark ruby colour with vivacious reflections. Lots of liquorice and a hint of black pepper. Ripe plum, aromatic herbs. Gently rounded acidity, toasty and creamy mid palate with a hint of fumé and delicate, silky tannins. Great flavour intensity and concentration let wine linger for long in the after taste leaving a slightly jammy blackberry hint.
Food pairing: Serve with red meat, cold meats and mature cheeses.
Serving temperature: 16-18°C
