The Sangiovese and Canaiolo grapes for this wine are sourced from Uggiano’s vineyards – which stretch over the hillsides joining Montespertoli with Montelupo Fiorentino and San Casciano Val di Pesa. After 15 days of fermentation the wine is racked to large oak botti for 14 months. The wine is refined in bottle for at least a further 12 months before release. Pronounced aromas of ripe black fruit, morello cherry with floral hints and a touch of lightly spicy oak. The palate is richly-flavoured with plum, wild cherry fruit, balsamic notes and firm but ripe tannins – leading on to a long, dry and savoury finish. Sommelier Wine Awards 2020 – Gold Medal.
