Harvest Note
The rainy and quite mild winter facilitated the winter operations of pruning the vineyards. Spring arrived at the end of March, with warm temperatures, mitigated by late winter days. The vineyards had a uniform budding, in tune with the season, showing a rich and interesting production. The Tuscan summer, hot and breezy, was interspersed with some rain, very useful for the vineyards, which enjoyed the balance hitherto manifested. September accompanied the ripening of the grapes to the harvest with an excellent result. Merlot has best expressed fruit and complexity, elevating the quality and finesse of the wine thanks to a great vintage.
Tasting Note
Clear brilliant, intense ruby red color with purple reflections, intense ripe fruit (blackberries and blueberries) integrated with toasted aromas (coffee and liquorice). It has pleasant freshness and persistence.
Food Pairing
Pairs well with red meats and structured dishes.
