What are you looking for?
A powerful red, packed with black cherry, blackberry and plum flavors, featuring vibrant acidity. Firmly structured, with tannins that resonate on the finish, offset by sweet fruit and underbrush notes.
The grapes were vinified separately with maceration taking place over 3 to 4 weeks in temperature controlled conditions. Fermentation took place on indigenous yeast at controlled temperature 25 to 30 degrees C in stainless steel tanks. Following fermentation, the wine remained for nearly three months in small French oak barrels. Further refinement in bottle before being released.
Enrico Santini has made a name for himself as one of the most dynamic and respected producers in the prestigious Bolgheri DOC. A native of the area, he is a “garagiste” in the truest sense of the word. Enrico is meticulous in his vineyards, his wines come exclusively from his organic estate, and they radiate his profound passion. As one of the only wine producers in Bolgheri who was born and raised in the area, he has a deep commitment to the region that developed out of his love for the land and the micro-climate of this spectacular Tuscan coastal area.
The vineyards are located in the Bolgheri region of Toscana, where the clayey and calcareous soil components and the micro-climate help shape the grapes. The weather is Mediterranean, yet cool with the grapes ripening at the end of September.
