Our Sangiovese grapes originate in the hills between the Provinces of Siena and Florence within the renowned Chianti area of Tuscany. This area is known for a warm, sunny growing season with substantial temperature differential between day and night. Such conditions produce flavorful, rich grapes. The vines that produce our Sangiovese grapes are grown in the “traditional Tuscany upturned” system, a variation on the “Guyot” system. The wines are positioned to point south, which contributes to the complete maturation of the fruit
The grapes were harvested upon full maturation during the middle of September.
The wine was vinified using an average maceration time of 8 to 10 days. Temperature
was controlled (28-29 °C) during the fermentation to encourage the release of
attractive tannins and to develop a clear ruby color, while maintaining the rich fruit
aromas characteristic of the Sangiovese grape
Aged for 6 months in stainless steel temperature controlled tanks
The aroma is intense with elegant floral notes, particularly sweet violets, followed by fruity fragrances of dried plum and dark cherry. Concludes with spicy nuances of roasted espresso bean, notes of vanilla, and black liquorice
The palate shows excellent structure and balance with delicate, soft tannins. The finish is
long, with an aftertaste of wild berries.
Perfect with grilled or roasted meats and hearty pastas or stews.
