Il Pareto Toscana IGT 2017 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

The winter and fall seasons have been mild and low in rainfalls. The spring season started with hot and sunny days leading to an advanced germination. The summer season was mostly hot, dry and without heat picks allowing the vines to keep a great balance between the plants and their production. The harvesting time was standard with rainfalls alternating to long sunny periods and a good wind supply thus favoring the perfect ripening process of all kinds of grapes.

tasting note

Aromas of great complexity elegantly combining spices and wild, red berries. It is powerful and intense on the palate, deep and full-bodied, revealing a rare tannic maturity on the finish. Harmony and elegance at its best.

food pairing

Pairs well with roasted meats and hearty poultry.
