Monte Antico Supremus Toscana IGT 2015 Super Tuscan Red Wine – Tuscany, Italy

S$59.50

75% Sangiovese 15% Merlot 10% Cabernet Sauvignon

Supremus is a top selection from old vine Sangiovese, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes

The grapes for this wine were grown in the areas of Maremma, Colline Pisane, and Colli Fiorentini. Soil types vary but span from compact, very fine-textured limestone at 1,300-1,500 feet above sea level to a classic, clay and calcareous, rocky galestro around 1,300 feet above sea level, and go on to a clay, siliceous and calcareous soil at 820-990 feet above sea level. The finest grapes are harvested at their peak ripeness. This balanced combination of geological diversity makes for the wine’s consistent excellence.

The wine is fermented in stainless steel tanks at 77 °F (25 °C), followed by maceration on the skins for 15-20 days and malolactic fermentation for 7 days. Once the wine is blended, it aged 14 months in barrique – principally Allier oak. 70% of the barrique are new. Supremus ages 6 months in bottle before release.

Deep crimson in color, it sparkles with purple reflections. Its very intense, persistent bouquet of violets, cherries and red berry fruit shows subtle, elegant notes of vanilla and toasted wood, minerally nuances and hints of leather, chocolate, black pepper and cinnamon… An exquisite palette of aromas confirmed on the full, lush, flavorful palate characterized by sweet, mellow, velvety tannins. Long, lingering finish.

Delicious paired with rich, structured dishes, meat, game, seasoned cheeses.
