Marchesi Gondi Mazzaferrata Toscana IGT 2015
Marchesi Gondi Mazzaferrata is named to evoke the family's warrior origins. Deep ruby red colour. Intense and complex nose of blueberry and plum juice before evolving towards hints of sweet cardamom and cumin spice, toasty notes, bitter chocolate and tobacco. The aromas follow through to its powerful and rich palate, which has a smooth balance and tight, silky tannins.
100% Cabernet Sauvignon. The fruit comes from a specialised vineyard in the Villa Bossi Estate The vineyard has a southern exposure and sits on a hill at 300 metres altitude. The vines grow in Galestro (typical Tuscan hard stone) and clay soils with calcareous sediments.
Fermentation in vats at a controlled temperature of 20°C. Malolactic fermentation in oak barrels. The wines ages for 12 months in 20HL Slavonian oak barrels, 12 months in oak barriques and a final 24 months in bottle.
