Denomination

Sangiovese di Toscana, IGT

Description

A Sangiovese that is crisp, fresh, and laden with energy. A sparkling ruby announces ultra-fruity aromas, with generous notes of strawberry and blackberry, plus a delicious, emphatic vein of coffe and licorice. Smooth and full-flavoured in the mouth, it concludes dry and clean at the end of the palate.

Vintage Report

The excellent weather in April and May accelerated the grapevines’ phenological phases, while a particularly hot July helped the fruits’ ripening, which progressed softly throughout the August rains. The lower temperatures in August helped to develop the concentration of substances within the grapes that are necessary to obtain a product with excellent polyphenolic aromas.
