Pietraregia Morellino Riserva is a smooth, stylish wine that was launched with the 2006 harvest. Multi-layered, complex, and firmly structured, it has proven impressive for its overall elegance and for its seductive character, qualities classic to the great red wines produced in the Tuscan Maremma.
The growing season was characterised by considerable rainfall, which contributed to plentiful underground water reserves. Budding began in the first weeks of April, and the summer was marked by a number of well-distributed rainfalls. The improvement in weather conditions in August triggered a slow and gradual ripening of the grapes. The overall coolness of the seasons provided the grapes with the opportunity to perfectly express their characteristics.
Pietraregia 2014 is ruby ed with crimson highlights. To the nose, the wine expresses the ripe fruit notes of plums with a nuance of blackcurrant and floral violets that give way to a spiced and balsamic finish. In the mouth, the wine has elegantly structured and dense tannins accompanied by a marked acidity that allows the fresh and balsamic bouquet to come through. The wine’s finish is rich in toasted notes with a sweet and persistent aftertaste.
