Terre More - 2016

VINTAGE

Denomination

Maremma Toscana Cabernet DOC

Description

Terre More, a careful blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Syrah, is a rich, intense wine that is modern in style yet eloquently expressive of the growing area it represents.

Vintage Report

The growing season was characterised by a relatively dry fall followed by a winter with temperatures that never fell below zero and a mild spring that stimulated the plant’s awakening. The flowering phase, in fact, began approximately ten days earlier than the previous year. The spring rains ensured that the plants had the necessary water reserves to sustain themselves throughout the extremely dry summer, which was, however, not excessively hot. The result was a harvest noteworthy for the impeccable health of the plants and grapes.

    Tasting Notes

    Terre More 2016 is a bright and intense ruby colour with purplish highlights. Elegant to the nose, it possesses notes of ripe fruit such as blackberry and blackcurrant that leave way to spiced aromas of liquorice and vanilla. In the mouth the wine is enveloping and beautifully complex, with fine and elegant tannins that exalt its structure and lead the way to persistent finish with a freshly fruity aftertaste.
