COLORI SANGIOVESE

Designation of origin: Montescudaio Sangiovese DOC

Grape variety: Sangiovese

Label: The design is based on the oldest found document in Etruscan script, the "Marsiliana" ivory tablet (Maremma, Tuscany) from the 8th to 7th century BC. It contains the Etruscan alphabet, which was written from right to left. This piece of Tuscan history was the inspiration behind our design for the COLORI line.

Vinification: Harvested by hand. A vibrating table is used to select the grapes. Fermentation with indigenous yeast in steel tanks and subsequent malolactic fermentation in French barriques (second use). The wine is aged for 24 months in barriques. Afterwards, the wine is bottled (without filtration).

A clear, dense ruby red with slight garnet tints. The bouquet is clean and of a pleasant intensity. Offering notes of red rose blossoms, Amarena cherry and raspberries, the disparate perfume is well interlaced within a broad complexity of balsamic notes and a hearty salinity. The taste has a lively freshness with a light hint of tannin typical for this vine variety. The flavour of the wine will develop over time with a promise of pleasures to come.

This is a wine that truly begins to unfold with a meal. Pasta with ragout, roast veal and lamb from the oven complement the wine superbly. It also goes well with medium mature cheese provided the smell is not too strong.
