This Rosso di Montepulciano is made from 90% Sangiovese (locally referred to as Prugnolo Gentile), 5% Canaiolo Nero, and 5% Mammolo from different vineyards in the Montepulciano area. A portion of the wine is aged for three months in one year-old French barriques. The final product is matured for an additional three months in bottle before release.
The cold premaceration supports the natural extraction of the aromas while the not too long maceration on the skins helps the wine to keep its freshness and a bright and alive fruit taste.
This ruby red wine has opulent aromas of berries, including blueberries, blackberries, and raspberries, over more subtle notes of wildflowers and sweet spices. On the palate, the wine is elegant, with well-balanced tannins, vibrant acidity, and a smooth texture.
Pair with herb grilled pork tenderloin, pasta arrabiata, Tuscan bean soup, and paella with chorizo.
