||Canaiolo Nero, Colorino, 90% Sangiovese, Malvasia Nera
||Castello di Nipozzano (FI)
||Altitude: 300 m. a.s.l. Exposure: South-West.
||Limestone, well drained, poor in organic matter.
||End of September. Upon being harvested, the grapes were immediately taken to the cellar.
||Once de-stemmed, the natural fermentation process began in cement vats, where the wine completed maceration.
||Its journey continued in 30 hl wooden barrels, where the wine aged for 24 months. The subsequent period in the bottle allowed for the development of a greater balance of all the wine’s components, allowing for a full appreciation of its essence once the bottle is opened.
||Pairs well with classic dishes such as ribollita, a dense Tuscan soup, pappardelle with wild boar ragù, and cannelloni stuffed with meat and béchamel sauce. Excellent with roasted or grilled red meats.
