ROSSO TOSCANA I.G.T.
This represent one of the production leading brands, with an eye to the local tradition, thanks to the prevailing use of the best Sangiovese grapes, and another to a more modern and well-suited interpretation of different taste demands thanks to use of accurate selections of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes.
Both an elegant and persuasive wine, but at the same time so powerful and able to convey all the features associated to San Gimignano territory potential also for red wines.
Bunches of grape undergo a delicate crushing-destemming, to which follows an alcoholic fermentation at approx. 28/30° with frequent and delicate pump-over and after that a maceration on lees for approx. 20/30 days in small stainless tanks, wide and low so as to foster more contact liquid/lees and consequent better extraction both of tannins and coloring matter.
After racking, wine is set both in barriques and limited-capacity barrels to conclude the alcoholic fermentation to which would immediately follow the malolactic fermentation.
