A wine with a great personality, an authentic expression of a Cabernet Sauvignon that has found its perfect home in the Tuscan hills.
- 1 bottle 750 ml
Blend: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon
Vineyard: Located on the sunny side of the hill of Pulignano, it overlooks the Etruscan archaeological site of Montereggi. The vineyard is managed with passion and care to select the best Cabernet Sauvignon grape. The soil is rich in sandstone, skeleton and galestro which give the wine great structure, depth and aromatic intensity.
Year of planting: 1970
Density per hectare: 5.000 strains
Yield per hectare: 4-5 tons
Vine training system: Spurred cordon
Vinification: The grapes are manually collected with a double sorting of the bunches in the field and in the cellar. They are then introduced into steel tanks through gravity and vinified at a controlled temperature of 25/28°. Here, for a period varying between fifteen to twenty days, the alcoholic fermentation and the maceration of the skins take place, during which are carried out only through gentle punch-downs. After malolactic fermentation in steel, a period of ageing in wood barrels follows.
Maturation and ageing: Eight-month period in French oak barrels followed by six months of ageing in large 25 hectolitre French oak barrels.
Tasting notes: Solid and deep like the roots of Villa Bibbiani in the Tuscan land, Montereggi IGT has a very intense ruby red colour. A complex nose of spices combined with hints of roasted coffee and cocoa. In the mouth, it is pervasive and gives long lasting flavours, with silky and vibrant tannins. With great personality and high potential for ageing, it is a genuine expression of a Cabernet Sauvignon that has found its perfect home in the Tuscan hills.
Matching: It goes well with the noble Tuscan gastronomy such as red meats, roasts, game and mature cheeses. To better understand its complexity and aromatic notes, it gives the best of itself tasted alone.
