A blend of 95% Sangiovese (called Prugnolo Gentile in Montepulciano) and 5% Canaiolo Nero, the grapes for this wine are hand harvested in late September. The must undergoes an initial pre-fermentation maceration at low temperatures to release some of the grapes more subtle nuances.
About the Vineyard
The sandy-claily soil enhance the elegance of the wines since the sand that is on top drains the water underground while the clay which is in the deepest layer is a kind of sponge that preserves the water and the hydratation of the roots. This factors make the plants being always in a good water balance even in hot and dry vintages
This wine is a blend of different vineyards that are picked and vinified separately and blended at the end of the malolactic fermentation.
This stunning wine is deep ruby red in color with intense aromas of ripe dark berries and black cherries complemented by subtler notes of spices and tobacco. Lush and velvety on the palate, this wine offers a full-flavored, powerful profile with smooth, polished tannins and bright acidity.
This wine is emphasized by tasteful and fat dishes that perfectly match with its smooth tannins and fresh acidity. Then pair this wine with tasteful pastas, rotisserie-roasted red meat, marinara sauces, braised lamb, and grilled polenta.
