ROSSO No.1

IGT Toscana Rosso

NV

 

Grapes were selected by hand from each vineyard site with its unique combination of grape variety, soil-type and position. Each component is fermented and aged separately until the moment of blending. The wines are then carefully chosen and, through multiple trials, combined. The resulting wine is then further aged to give complexity, balance and harmony. By blending across 2 or 3 vintages, and multiple vineyards and grape varieties, each release of Rosso №1 is optimized for balance, harmony and drinkability. Best consumed within 3-5 years of release.

Aromatic notes of cherry, herbs and dark hedgerow fruits  with touches of spice and toasted oak. Medium bodied with fine, elegant tannins and persistent  mouth watering fruit. Combines well with a wide range of dishes from proschiutto to pizza and more.
