Made from 100% Sangiovese which is hand-harvested from estate vineyards in early October, the grapes are crushed and macerated for a period of 20 days to extract greater color and aroma concentration. Locorosso rests in stainless steel tanks for 18 months and then in the bottle for six months to soften and integrate the tannins.
This wine is deep ruby red with notes of red and black fruits, such as strawberries, cherries, and cassis over more subtle notes of chocolate and black pepper. On the palate, the wine is well structured and supple with a luxurious finish.
Pair this wine with a wide array of dishes including meat ravioli, prosciutto-topped pizza, and chicken paella.
