If Warhol worked with sangiovese this would be the result. It is bold and precise, it just works. Black cherry and floral on the nose. Some lemon and spice, a serious attack of black cherry fruit, highlights and shades from basil, dark chocolate and dried herb.

Description

Details

Sant Agnese Libatio
IGT Toscana

Grape  Sangiovese (clone Brunello 42)

Libatio, an offering of food to the moon. The vineyard is between 25 and 75 meters above sea level, planted in the curve of the hill on a mixture of clays and small stones, a typical Tuscan galestro.  The vines were planted in 1999 at a density of 5500 plants per hectare which yield around four tons of fruit per hectare. 

Fermentation is in open steel and concrete tanks with regular punching down of the cap.  The temperature is held at around 25˚C and lasts around ten days.  The wine is then allowed to settle naturally and decanted into (second passage) Allier barrique where it completes malolactic fermentation and matures for 2 years.  The wine is totally untainted and only the smallest dose of sulphur is added before bottling.

This wine was finally bottled in October 2013, if Warhol worked with Sangiovese this would be the result. It is bold and precise, it just works.  Black cherry and floral on the nose. Some lemon and spice, a serious attack of black cherry fruit, highlights and shades from basil, dark chocolate and dried herb.  A youthful, finessed wine which will develop for many years.
