"A Red Wine from Tuscay, ageing in oak barrels and terracotta amphora, with outstanding intense taste and flavours"- M.Galardi
Red Organic wine
Appellation / Indication specification:
IGT- Rosso di Toscana
Tuscany – Florentine Hills ( Fiesole)
Merlot ( 55%) and Cabernet (45%)
“Cordone speronato” ( low-spurred cordon) and Guyot , Organic farming.
Intense ruby red, with garnet reflexes after ageing
The three ageing phases– first in stainless steel vats, then in oak barriques+terracotta amphora and, finally, in bottle – determine notable aromatic fullness. Distinct sensations then blend harmoniously for a perfect balance of aroma and taste.
Grapes used for this wine, from selected Merlot and Cabernet vines, characterized by small size grapes and loose bunch, contribute to the remarkable structure of the wine, which is balanced and elegant, with berry and spice notes.
Combinations with food:
Its characteristics unfold best with red meat, game and stewed meats.
We recommend opening the bottle and decanting the wine prior to serving in wide crystal glass, Envoy this wine at18-20° C
Within 8 years from the harvest
All the spes are followed with maximum attention to details:
Harvesting system: hand harvested grapes and transport to the cellar in small boxes.
Vinification: soft stemming and pressing; fermentation by selected yeast with temperature control in stainless steel vats and rémontages and délestages.
Maturation: first in stainless steel vats, then in medium toasted oak barrels and terracotta amphora . The wine is bottled avoiding strict filtration methods, which do impart translucency and clarity to a wine, but inevitably also destabilize its structure.
During the ageing in bottle, any sediment, dued to the crystallization of potassium salts - naturally occurred in grapes - should be considered the result of a normal evolution of a wine with a powerful structure and with a high concentration, intensified by the ageing in terracotta.
