Tuscan Sangiovese-Cabernet Sauvignon blend. “Intense ruby red in colour. Notes of ripe red fruit, together with cassis and blackberries, balanced with the hints of chocolate and sweet spices on the nose. Rich, bold and vibrant on the palate with silky tannins which give a complexity and length to the finish.
The grapes were hand-harvested with four stages of strict sorting: first, on the vine, then by individual clusters, and then again by single berry following de-stemming and sorting table. The selected grapes go directly into the concrete vats using gravity only. The fermentation and maceration take a total of 3 weeks maximising the extraction of varietal character and complexity while keeping the tannins round and supple. After the fermentation the wine is drained followed by malolactic fermentation. The wine is aged 15 months in French oak barrels.” Source: Monterosola
