Grape Varieties: Sangiovese, Canaiolo, Syrah, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon
Wine with a very clear scent, with very intense dark fruit notes and flowers, cocoa, vanilla and spices which define its complexity. It is a wine that keeps the specific charateristics of Montecarlo DOC, but the structure is remarkable because of the ageing of the Sangiovese in barriques for 7 months. It has a velvety, wide and dense taste at the beginning, with clear but rounded tannins and it is well balanced and persistent.
To be served at a temperature of 18 °C.
Superb with tasty soups, white meat and stewed aromatic meat, grilled red meat, eel, salted codfish, dried cod, aromatic fish soupa, semi-aged cheese.
Fermentation & Ageing:
Fermentation and maceration in stainless steel thermo-conditioned tanks. Part of the must is fermented at low temperature to better preserve the varietal aromas, while a part ages in barriques for 7 months where it does the malolactic fermentation.
