Abbadia Ardenga Capo Borgo IGT 2019 

Abbadia Ardenga Capo Borgo IGT knows that being the Capo "boss" can be a delicate task of achieving balance. Bright red colour with violet hues. Distinctive nose with hints of ripe fruit. The dry and medium-bodied palate has a fresh acidity and smooth tannins. Ripe black cherry, pomegranate and plum flavours with spicy hints of earth, thyme and tobacco. Reminiscent of the scents of Tuscany and Montalcino's surrounding hills.

100% Sangiovese Grosso. The fruit comes from vineyards on the Abbadia Ardenga estate in the municipality of Montalcino.

Harvesting by hand in early October. Fermentation at a controlled temperature in stainless steel tanks for 16 days. The wine ages for 4 months in Slavonian oak barrels, 1 month in Tuscan oak and finally 8 months in the bottle.
