Spavento

Toscana Rosso IGP

A characterful blend of 50% Sangiovese, 35% Syrah and 15% Alicante Bouschet. Deep red in colour with purplish reflections, the nose opens up with marked berry notes and hints of juniper and flint; a balanced, harmonious, persistent palate with soft tannins running through it.
Vinification: the grapes are harvested by hand when fully ripe and handled with extreme care to prevent any damage. After destalking and crushing, they undergo fermentation in stainless steel tanks for 15-20 days using only indigenous yeasts so that the process is 100% natural. Long maceration on the skins follows with frequent, gentle pumping over. The wine matures for 24 months in steel tanks. Depending on how the wine develops in that particular year, it may spend some time in large oak barrels. The wine ages for at least 12 months in the bottle before going to market.
