Ruby red in colour with garnet inflections. Full bodied bouquet with spicy notes typical of Sangiovese and violet, blackberry and raspberry. The time in barrique gives the wine an aromatic note as well as vanilla and coffee. Full and persistent on the palate with a noticeable tannic presence and an acidity that supports the general structure of the wine. A wine of considerable aromatic impact and wealth of flavour which ages extremely well.
ABOUT THE PRODUCER
The Cragnotti family purchased the 300 acre property in southern Tuscany in Montepulciano in the early 1990s, creating Corte alla Flora Estate. There were no vineyards planted at that time, and they have planted over 35 hectares of vineyards, making them one of the top ten producers in Montepulciano. In addition to grapes, they also tend a large olive grove, harvesting all the trees by hand, and make wonderful olive oil.
