Designation of origin: Costa Toscana Rosso IGT

Label: The design is based on the oldest found document in Etruscan script, the “Marsiliana” ivory tablet (Maremma, Tuscany) from the 8th to 7th century BC. It contains the Etruscan alphabet, which was written from right to left. This piece of Tuscan history was the inspiration behind our design for the COLORI line.
Vinification: Harvested by hand. A vibrating table is used to select the grapes, from vintage 2020 on with an optic sorting machine. Fermentation with indigenous yeast in steel tanks and subsequent malolactic fermentation in French barriques (second use). The wine is aged for 24 months in barriques. Afterwards, the wine is bottled (without filtration).

A clear and dense ruby red with garnet tints. The bouquet has intense notes of blackberries, blueberries and ripe plums. Connoisseurs will savour the spirited hint of chocolate and coffee. This wine also offers an elegant tinge of liquorice. The minerality is well structured and pleasantly warm. Ripe yet still fresh, the tannins add superlative persistence with a wonderful lively aftertaste.
A wine that can be paired with game such as saddle of venison, but also with wild boar salami, barbecued suckling pig and grilled dishes. The wine can also hold its own against a medium mature Pecorino.
Serving temperature: 16 – 18° C
