Terremore - 2015

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 heavy rainfall both at the end of autumn and during the winter, which contributed in keeping underground water levels well-supplied. When compared to previous years, budding began about a week late, but a favourable climate in April and May—as well as a very hot July mitigated by cooler evenings—accelerated the plants’ growth, allowing for an early veraison. The grapes’ ripening progressed softly due to a rainy August that lowered temperatures, resulting in a product distinguished by excellent aromatic polyphenols.

    Tasting Notes

    Full-bodied and brilliant, Terre More 2015 is a deep, rich ruby colour. Quite varied to the nose, the wine reveals fruity notes of plums and currants that give way to spiced and balsamic notes of vanilla and liquorish. In the mouth it is soft and enveloping, with fine and elegant tannins that blend well with the wine’s structure. Fresh, thanks to its elegant acidity, it possesses a very long finish that leaves a fruity and sweet aftertaste.
