Style – Dry, Medium Bodied, Red
Grapes – Sangiovese
Region – Emilia-Romagna, Italy
Winemaking - 100% Sangiovese from three vineyards parcels between 150m and 350m above sea level, with a north/northeast exposure. One is clay-limestone, one is red clay with high spungone content, and the last is clay-limestone with veins of spungone. Vines are approximately 40 years old. The grapes were destemmed but not crushed, leaving whole berries intact. Fermentation was spontaneous in small stainless steel tanks (with temperture control), and open-top tronconic wood vats and tonneaux. Macerations lasted 15-25 days. Aging was for one year in used 3500L Slavonian oak botti.
What it tastes like - This is silky in texture, yet juicy and spry with zesty, red berry fruits motivated by brilliant acidity under an air of inner violets and exotic spices. An easy to drink style of Sangiovese. Rich and complex, but not overpowering. Beautiful balance between acidity and silky tannins on the palate. The nose is fruit-forward with hints of sweet vanilla.
