Il Pareto Toscana IGT 2015 play

Region: Italy / Tuscany / Chianti
Grapes: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon

At 350 meters in elevation, the 10-acre Il Pareto vineyard has clay soil with lime and gravel-size stones. The soil composition is ideal for Cabernet Sauvignon, with a high proportion of galestro rock. Il Pareto grapes are manually harvested, destemmed and crushed before fermentation and malolactic fermentation in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks. Maceration on the lees for 15 days promotes the extraction of optimal color and fine, structured tannins. The wine is aged in Allier oak barriques, part new and part one year old, for 16 months, and then in bottle for a minimum of 6 months.

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

This wines classic Cabernet aromas and flavors of cassis and black fruits have intriguing dried herb, spice, vanilla and cedar notes. On the palate, jammy fruit leads to firm, noble tannins before a long finish.

food pairing

Pairs well with roasted meats and hearty poultry.
