Production

The Sangiovese and Canaiolo grapes are sourced from Uggiano's vineyards - which stretch over the hillsides joining Montespertoli with Montelupo Fiorentino and San Casciano Val di Pesa. After pressing, the grapes undergo temperature-controlled fermented in stainless steel using selected yeasts - with pumping over twice a day. After 10-15 days the wine is racked and fermentation finished in cement tanks.

Tasting notes

Fresh and appealing on the nose with plenty of ripe red fruits and a hint of spice. Fresh and juicy sour cherry characters on the palate, richly-flavoured, with supple and abundant red fruit balanced by vibrant acidity and ripe tannins.

Food match

Roasted and grilled meats, pici pasta with rabbit ragu.
