This wine has the same characteristics of Brunello but with an easier approach. The grapes of Sangiovese come from the younger vineyards which produce aromatic and elegant wines with a medium body. It is the ideal every day companion for family meals.
Vinification: Before the regular fermentation the grapes were subjected to a cold pre-fermentative maceration which consists in cooling the grapes at a temperature of 16° C. This process increases colour stability and improves extraction of polyphenols and aroma compounds. The alcoholic fermentation lasted 12/13 days at a controlled temperature of 27-28°C.
Aging: This wine had about 6 months of refinement in small/medium oak barrels and stainless steel vats.
Alcohol: 13,94% by vol.
Sensory Analysis: Colour brilliant ruby red. Bouquet clean and fresh with prevalence of red berries, redcurrant and cherry. Light scents of eucalyptus. Taste warm and pleasant with smooth tannins. Savoury. Mineral, a touch of menthol in the finish.
Food combinations: It is the perfect complement for roasted and grilled meat (both beef and white meat), cheeses and casserole dishes.
Serving temperature: 16/18°C.
