Description

Vines: Produced mainly from Grape varieties used are red Malvasia, Canaiolo, Ciliegiolograpes.
Soil: Pebbly soil, of marly calcareous nature, formed in the alluvial phase of the river Elsa in the upper Pliocene, about 3 million years ago. This type of soil gives wines rich in body but very balanced.
Training: we use the technique of Cordon, with a density of approximately 5.000 plants per hectare.
Harvest: The grapes are picked by hand, placed in boxes and transported in the corporate center where they are passed on top of a sorting table in order to select only the best berries. This system of collection and selection of grapes, although more expensive than traditional, allows us to increase greatly the quality of our wine. During the sorting, all of the grapes not perfectly ripe are removed.
Aging: fermentation in steel vats for about 10 days and aging for 12 months in barriques and tonneaux.
Appearance: Ruby red with purple reflections, good consistency.
Aroma: Intense and persistent with fruity, winey and floral nuances.
Taste: Concentrated and fruity, soft, very pleasant.
Pairings: It is well suitable for all dishes. It matches very well with many appetizers thanks to an interesting olfactory appearance with well-marked fruity and floral scents. For example Tuscan crostini with pate or salami and cheese would be a perfect combination. It pairs best with tasty meat sauces such as Amatriciana or Carbonara for the first course and with roasted meats, such as roast beef, for second courses, where the tannic and alcoholic components match well.
