Acciaiolo, Super Tuscan 2016, Castello di Albola

No tax

Appellation: Toscana IGT

Area: Radda in Chianti (Siena)

Grapes: 65% Sangiovese, 35% Cabernet Sauvignon

Vinification and ageing: The grapes are slightly over-ripe because they are picked late (2nd - 8th October) after a previous selection to discard the less promising bunches. The must ferments

for 10 days in vertical vinification tanks, where the wine then remains for 15 days to macerate after the fermentation. Maturation takes place in new, two year-old barriques for

14 months, followed by an extra six months in stainless steel tanks and another six in the bottle.

Color: Dark garnet with a ruby-red edge.

Bouquet: Enticing dark cherry, plum, exotic spices and a hint of underbrush.

Palate: Smooth, medium to full-bodied with firm tannins, lush cassis and black cherry with hints of star anise and tobacco and a long, spicy finish.

Food combinations: Classic grilled or roasted beef and game meats and aged hard cheeses.

Alcohol level: 13.5% vol.
