Il Guercio 2019

Something different. 100% Sangiovese from the “Mello” vineyard in Gaiole in Chianti, 700 m above sea level. The grapes are picked late to get maximum ripeness from this beautiful high-lying vineyard. Fermented in cement tanks with 20% whole bunches. The very long maceration of 4 months gives this wine a wonderful fruit character, which differentiates it from the more classic styles. Ageing: 12 months cement

“Extremely perfumed and fresh with dried flowers, cherries, strawberries. Medium-to full-bodied with an oily texture and lovely soft tannins. Lots of spices and fruit. Earth, too. This uses about 30% whole-berry fermentation. Long maceration after alcoholic fermentation. Bright fruit. No wood. All cement”
