Product Description

  • Red Italian Wine
  • Indicazione Geografica Tipica.
  • Climate Vintage: The beginning of spring saw a good amount of rain and slightly higher temperatures than the seasonal average, which favoured a slight anticipation of the budding phase. In the following period, average temperatures and rainfall led to excellent flowering and vegetative cycle. Rains at the beginning of summer maintained a good plant growth equilibrium which lasted throughout the month of August. Notwithstanding the high day temperatures, nights were cool and assured the full ripening of all grape varieties. As a result, the ripening of the grapes proceeded optimally, guaranteeing the presumption of an excellent harvest.
  • Wine of Italy
  • Pack size: 75cl

Vinification Details

  • The grapes were de-stemmed, lightly pressed, and macerated in stainless steel tanks for 12 days, at a temperature which was kept below 30°C. During this time alcoholic fermentation also took place. By the end of the year, the wine had also completed its malolactic fermentation and was then transferred partly to French, American and Hungarian oak barrique to age for 12 months. The wine was then bottled and aged at least 8 months before release.

Holiday memories

5 stars

Was first introduced to this wine in 2001 by a German waiter in a 5 star hotel in Lugano, Switzerland. Being located in the sole Italian speaking canton, the wine menu had a vast Italian selection, but he was determined to push this one for me to try, and frankly, I have always considered it was one of the best mid-range wines I have ever had recommended to me. Hence, I have bought It many times since and have never been disappointed. It has such depth of flavour; never harsh, and is a wine to savour and drink slowly. Usually throws a sediment, but I've never decantered it. At 13.5%, I would ask anybody contemplating the purchase of an excellent Italian wine, not to think twice; buy this one.

For the money this is well worth a comparison with your favorite cru bourgeois supérieur. Tuscans do make good Cab Sav blends and this is a good entry example..

Full bodied red
