Description

Casa Emma Harenae Colli della Toscana Centrale IGT 2018

Casa Emma Harenae is Sangiovese made entirely in amphora. Brilliant ruby red colour. Fresh and crispy bouquet of wild raspberry, red cherry and balsamic notes. Medium- to full-bodied with a good structure, chewy tannins and a crisp acidity. Raspberry compote and ripe red cherry flavours with layers of mulberries, tobacco and leather. Long and persistent finish.

Fun fact: 'Harenae' is the latin word for sand or Terracotta. The word was chosen as the wines' namesake to honour how sand is the essential material to build Amphora vessels.

100% Sangiovese from plots at the highest elevations of the Chianti Classico appellation. The plots sit at an altitude of 480 metres and have a limestone, rock and clay soil composition. These vines experience the earliest bud breaks and latest harvest times.
After the harvest, the grapes go through vinification and fermentation spherical amphora of 1000 L with manual crushing of the grapes. The wine ages for 1 year in amphoras, then for 6 months in bottles.
Ageing potential: 12 years

AWARDS & ACCOLADES



 Aromas of dark plums, mulberries, black tea and black licorice. It’s full-bodied with chewy tannins. Structured and focused with rich, intense layers of dark fruit. Pure fruit here. Sangiovese. Made in amphorae. Drink or hold

Made entirely in amphora, this delicious Sangiovese has inviting, earthy aromas of ripe black plum, truffle, blackberry, baking spice and blue flower. Reflecting the nose, the enveloping, chewy palate doles out mouthfuls of fleshy Marasca cherry, raspberry compote, cinnamon and tobacco. Velvety tannins provide the almost lush framework while fresh acidity picks up the finish. Drink through 2025.
