Because isn't that the whole point?
the grapes are sourced exclusively from the vineyards of the Campo alla Sughera agricultural company situated in the heart of the Bolgheri denominazione di origine area. Grapes: Petit Verdot and a small amount of Merlot. Alcohol by volume: 14,5% vol. Harvest: manual, in boxes, each containing 15 Kg of grapes. Vinification technique: the height of the wine cellar is exploited, making the most of gravity to move the grapes, must and wines. After de-stemming and soft crushing, there is a period of cold pre-fermentation maceration at a temperature of 7-8°C for approximately 3-4 days. Following this the temperature is gradually increased and alcoholic fermentation begins. After approximately 15 days the wine is de-vatted. After first racking the wine is decanted into barrels for malolactic fermentation. Ageing: particular attention is paid to the choice of barrels. All carefully selected barrels are made of French oak and seasoned in the open air for a minimum of 3 years. Here, the wine matures for at least 24 months and after bottling, is refined for a further 24 months. Organoleptic characteristics Colour: intense ruby red, great consistency. Fragrance: fine and persistent with background notes of small mature dark fruits. There are definite notes of balsamic, tobacco, pepper and liquorice. A sophisticated balance. Taste: full bodied, structured and almost 'meaty', while at the same time soft and elegant with a persistent finish. Advice for optimum tasting: open the bottle at least half an hour before serving and serve at a temperature of 18°C in large crystal glasses, both in warm and cold seasons. Excellent in summer when served at the right temperature. Food and wine pairing: the particular tannic and structural nature of the wine makes it an ideal pairing for robust meats (in-fur game), preferably prepared after a long maceration in wine (salmi), or with great Italian cheeses such as Pecorino di fossa or Parmigiano Reggiano aged for 36 months.View all products by Campo Alla Sughera
