S$48.00

85% Sangiovese 10%Merlot 5% Cabernet Sauvignon

The grapes and ensuing wine come from different altitudes and different soils. Soil type goes from compact, very fine-textured limestone at 1,300-1,500 feet above sea level; to classic, clayey/calcareous, rocky galestro, also at altitudes around 1,300 feet; and clayey/siliceous/calcareous soil, at an altitude of 820-990 feet.

Fermentation is in stainless steel tanks at c. 25° C (77° F), followed by maceration on the skins for 15-20 days and malolactic for 7 days. The wine is subsequently aged 1 year in oak (80% Slavonian barrels, 20% barriques). The Slavonian barrels are 5-6 years old. Bottle ageing is 1 year.

A true Tuscan classic! Deep ruby color with garnet reflections and an elegant bouquet of leather, black cherries, licorice and plums; a medium to a full-bodied palate, rich in ripe red fruit, goût de terroir, subtle notes of vanilla and violet that are well-integrated with the soft tannins and silky texture. Firm backbone, perfect integration of acidity and fruit and a well-rounded, gentle finish.

Matches pasta, risotto, structured dishes, meat, cheese; extremely versatile and food-friendly.
