Rosso di Toscana IGT 2015 play

Region: Italy / Tuscany
Grapes: Sangiovese, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah

Grapes are grown in the Chianti and Maremma regions according to the soil type best suited to each grape variety. Chianti Classico soils, with their higher clay content, are well suited to Sangiovese, while Maremma’s unique climate and sandy soils are optimal for Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah. The grapes are carefully blended by Ambrogio e Giovanni Folonari in Greve, Chianti, to balance the wine’s characters of earthiness and acidity. The wine was fermented and aged in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks to enhance the fruit aromas.

harvest note

2015 has shown to be a very good vintage. After a mild and rainy winter, the vegetative start was in the second week of April with the arrival of spring and higher temperatures. The spring rains helped a lot the vegetation and ensured the water supply for the following summer. In June and mid-July temperatures were above the seasonal average, but by the end of July the temperatures lowered, returning to the average thanks to long rainy days, which was really good for the vines. The grapes were of an excellent quality. The wonderful structure and the elegant, soft tannins are the main elements of this vintage.

tasting note

The wine has ripe, crushed red cherry aromas and flavors with an earthy note. Food-friendly acidity and fine tannins balance the wine’s full-bodied, juicy fruit character.

food pairing

Pairs with pasta and tomato-based sauces, pizza, cured meats and young or earthy cheeses.

This gutsy Tuscan red is made by a family with centuries of winemaking tradition, but its spice and taste is distinctively modern Italian.
