Terrae Toscanae Sangiovese

Sangiovese di Toscana
The Cantina lies in the rolling Tuscan hills which are ideally suited to the cultivation of high quality grapes. In fact in the time of the Etruscans, this hilly zone of Aretino was called “the granary of Etruria” which since then is dotted with vineyards. More recently Plinio il Giovane has written of the uniqueness of the wines of this area in the opera “Naturalis Historia”. There is an ancient tradition of vine-growing and wine-producing that is rich and valuable in this zone. Made from 100% Sangiovese grapes that are hand picked and sorted, traditionally cold pressed under temperature-controlled conditions and subsequent prolonged maceration in order to enhance the fragrances and retain the color continuity from the skins. This wine has a brilliant ruby red color tending to granite with age. The aroma is distinctly characteristic of Sangiovese, delicate, fresh and full. It is soft and velvety on the palate with good structure and an engaging persistence. This is a wine of beautiful body and is perfect for many dining occasions. Couples well with grilled or roasted meats, all red meats, game, and sharp cheese. Serve at room temperature.
