Rompicollo

Toscana

This blend of 60% Sangiovese and 40% Cabernet Sauvignon comes from a single-vineyard site called Rompicollo, which benefits from a Southern exposure, ample sunlight, and a volcanic soil rich in tufo rock. The vines here are densely planted (2,700 vines per acre) in order to yield the best quality fruit. The wine sees a 10-day fermentation in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks, followed by a 12-month maturation period in 65Hl Slavonian oak casks. Offering an intense bouquet of ripe red cherries and other mature red fruits, the wine is well-balanced with good structure and length.  Perfect with pastas with red meat sauces, white meats, and fresh cheeses.
