IGT Tuscan Sangiovese 10 – EN

IGT Toscana Sangiovese – 10

This Sangiovese vineyard is located in one of the most inland and hilly areas of the Maremma near Grosseto. Here the Sangiovese wine of the Cortesi family is transformed into a fresher, fruitier and ready-to-drink version.

 

Vine varieties  

100% Sangiovese

 

Production area

The municipality of Manciano (province of Grosseto)

 

Vineyard characteristics

Altitude of 200 meters above sea level, skeletal soil with a clay composition. The 15-year-old vines are cultivated with the spurred cordon system.

 

Agronomic techniques

Our farming methods are based on natural, environmentally friendly processes: we use only organic fertilizers, and disease management consists only of copper and sulfur treatments. We harvest the grapes by hand in the last ten days of September. Each vine yields about two kilograms of grapes.

 

Winemaking

Spontaneous fermentation with indigenous yeasts at the temperature of 26° C; the grapes remain on the skins for 15 days. The wine ages on its fine lees in concrete tanks for six months. It is decanted and bottled in the late spring, the year after the harvest.

 

Organoleptic notes
Bright ruby red with slight garnet reflections. The nose is greeted with notes of cherry, wild strawberry, followed by citrus and Oriental spice aromas. In the mouth, it is balanced by a fine-grained tannin and flowery and fruity aromas. It is full-flavored but also quite sharp.

Recommended pairings
First courses served with meat sauces, grilled and oven-roasted red meat, medium-aged cheese.

Serving temperature
16° C
