Product description

100% Sangiovese from the Fontelontano Vineyard ( 0,5 Hectar) Removal of grape stalks and soft pressing, fermentation in stainless steel casks at the controlled temperature of 28-30° C, maceration on the skins for 20-25 days with extraction technique made with delestage and with pumping over during the first week of maceration. Then a delestage a week spaced out with pumping over decreasing along the process. Method of aging: it ages 36 months in French oak barrels of 5 Hl. Then other 18 months in the bottle for refining. Aging potential: 10-25 years according to vintage. Colour: intense ruby red with brilliant burgundy reflects. Bouquet: reminiscent of wild black fruits, vanilla and spices. Taste: dry, warm, austere but velvety The elegance of this wine, thanks also to its body and structure, makes it a wine for meditation. It matches all our best dishes of the Tuscan tradition: great with complex first courses (lasagne, pinci pasta with sauces made with game), second courses made with game, braised meat and ripe and spicy cheeses.
