The ultimate fruit of thirty years’ research and experience
from… old wines and old friends.
A noble Tuscan grape with aromas of mulberries, plums and leather. Wonderful cellarability due to its acidity and tannin levels.
Merlot Lovely, warming and plush, a grape that grows perfectly in Tuscany, especially on the coast.
Body and savor unlike no other, with aromas of black currant, plum and black pepper.
The grapes for this wine were grown in the areas of Maremma, Colline Pisane, and Colli Fiorentini. Soil types vary, but span from compact, very fine-textured limestone at 1,300-1,500 feet above sea level to a classic, clay and calcareous, rocky galestro around 1,300 feet above sea level, and go on to a clay, siliceous and calcareous soil at 820-990 feet above sea level. The finest grapes are harvested at their peak ripeness.
This balanced combination of geological diversity makes for the wine’s consistent excellence.
The wine is fermented in stainless steel tanks at 77 °F (25 °C), followed by maceration on the skins for 15-20 days and malolactic fermentation for 7 days. Once the wine is blended, it aged 14 months in barrique – principally Allier oak. 70% of the barrique are new. Supremus ages 6 months in bottle before release.
Very deep crimson with ample purple reflections. Extremely intense, persistent bouquet showing elegant nuances of violets, red berries, cherry and toasted vanilla as well as balsamic, leather and mineral notes and hints of chocolate, black pepper and cinnamon. This exquisite range of aromas is confirmed on the full, rich palate laced with velvety tannins and long, lingering finish.
Best to pair with pasta, structured dishes, meat and cheeses.
