Montecalvi San Piero IGT Toscana 2016
Montecalvi San Piero IGT Toscana is a single vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon. Dark fruit flavours and grainy tannins make its character unquestionably Montecalvi.
Blackberry, currant and cherry flavours mingle with spicy tobacco, pepper and delicate earthy notes. A rich and chalky wine that tastes like nothing else, yet still just seems to have a true Toscana personality.
Ageing potential: ready to drink now but will improve with time in bottle and cellar.
95% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Merlot. The fruit comes from a single organic vineyard on the Montecalvi estate in Tuscany, Italy. The soil composition is sandy loam on clay.
Hand harvesting of the fruit. The wine vinifies for around 30 days in stainless steel tank. Ages for 24 months in French oak barriques and tonneaux, then 12 months in bottle before release.
