This is a single vineyard, certified organic expression from Radda. The vineyard is located at 500 metres sitting on top of a pure Albarese and Galestro plateau. The Sangiovese is co-fermented with 5% Colorino. Fermentation is spontaneous and the wine is aged for about 16 months in Stokinger barrels. The presence of Colorino provides a much silkier and softer texture, adding more generous fruit to the final wine.
Deep dark red black colour with a brick red hue. Delightful ripe red currant, dark cherry and subtle rose petal scents sail out of the glass complimented by tertiary notes of earth, sweet tobacco, dried herbs, old cedar, hints of new leather and spice. Medium to full in body, the richly flavoured palate delivers a concentrated profile of fleshy dark cherries, blackcurrant, dried herbs, earth, tobacco, old cedar and spicy leather. Rustic feel with firm tannins imparting a chewy almost grippy feel onto the long robust finish.
Drink over the next 3-4 years.
