Leuta
The wine named 1.618 is obtained from grapes of French Merlot clone grown at 310 meters above seal level in the area surrounding Cortona, in Tuscany.
Dark with purplish-blue hues.
It expresses notes of small black berries combined with an aroma of plain chocolate and tobacco mixed with more mineral and dark sensations such as graphite and gunpowder.
It is round and smooth, with a sensation of dark-fruited jam balanced by a sufficiently sour and vertical structure. Its finish has good mineral persistence, combined with a mature tannic sensation.

Harvest The bunches to be used are selected on the plant during vintage, which takes place in the second half of September.
Vinification After the bunches have been examined and the berries rigorously selected, winemaking takes place in stainless steel vats. The must ferments in constant contact with the peels at a temperature not higher than 30 degrees with a maceration period of 12 days. During fermentation, delestage and pumping over are performed on a daily basis. Malolactic fermentation occurs entirely in wood.
Aging The wine is aged for 12 months in a range of French oak casks of differing grains, seasoning and toasting methods. The selection of which cask to use is made by the owners so that the wines obtain a higher degree of complexity and richness. After two additional months in steel, the wine is bottled and laid down for a further nine months.
