Technical datasheet:Alcohol content: 14% Vol.
Grape varieties: Made from Sangiovese (40%), Merlot (30%) and Cabernet-sauvignon (30%) grapes.
Production technique: The grapes destined to this type of wine are meticulously chosen and harvested strictly by hand. Vinification takes place via slow, temperature-controlled fermentation and prolonged maceration of the must on skins. The wine obtained is stored for ageing in small French oak barrels (barriques) for about 15 months, spending a further maturing period of at least 6 months in the bottle before being released for sale.
- COLOUR: very deep ruby re;
- BOUQUET: persistent, delicate and complex aroma: primary aromas of grapes and scents of toasted wood released by the barriques;
- FLAVOUR: harmonious, dry, sapid flavour, conveying an excellent balance with olfactory persistence featuring a very long aftertaste.
Accompaniments: It is particularly suited to serving with important dishes, such as red meat (the Florentine T-bone steak for instance) and roast game. It is also ideal with important, strongly flavoured and mature cheeses. It can also be classified among the wines "for thought".
Indications: Open the wine a few hours before drinking and pour at a temperature of at least 18°C, from a decanter if possible.
