Grapes: 100% Sangiovese
Nozzole estate consists of 1,000 acres of vineyards at 300 meters in elevation in the Chianti Classico zone. In order to obtain concentration and complexity in the wine, yields are kept low. The grapes were hand harvested, destemmed and crushed. Fermentation was initiated on the skins in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks and maceration lasted 15-20 days. The wine was racked into stainless steel tanks for malolactic fermentation before aging for 16 months in large Slavonian oak vats followed by a minimum of 3 months in bottle before release.
Tasting Panel2015 vintage
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.
Cherry and violet aromas, persistent and rounded flavors of spices and mushroom. Great structure with elegant finesse.
Pairs well with meats and meat pasta sauces, poultry and hard cheeses.
