Giusto di Notri Toscana IGT 2004

A classic, Bordeaux-inspired blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc, harvested between late September and early October. After a gentle pressing, the must is macerated with the skins for 15 to 18 days. The cap is manually punched down daily for greater color and flavor extraction. The wine is aged for 14 months in Allier and Tronçais barrels and refined six months in bottle before release.
