Le Chiantigiane "Sassorotto" Rosso di Montecucco DOC BIO 2017
This fine restaurant-quality imported wine is not available at LCBO stores.
It's an organic wine (vino biologico), made using the ancient Governo all’uso Toscano technique, a way to increase smoothness and reduce acidity in wines made from Sangiovese and other local Tuscan varieties. The up-and-coming appellation, Montecucco DOC, is located right between the Brunello di Montalcino zone and the Morellino di Scansano zone.
Grape Varieties: 70% Sangiovese, 15% Ciliegiolo, 15% Montepulciano d’Abruzzo.
Origin: Municipality of Cinigiano, Province of Grosseto, Maremma region, Tuscany, Italy.
Aging: For 10 months, 50% in oak and 50% in stainless steel tanks. Minimum refinement of 6 months in bottle.
Tasting Notes: Intense ruby red which evolves to garnet red when aged. A lovely, well-balanced wine on the nose, with predominantly cherry and berry notes. Velvety and generous on the palate, with sweet, soft tannins.
Food Pairing: This wine will go perfectly with most dishes, and it is particularly well suited to game, grilled meats, hearty soups, and mature cheeses.
Serving temperature: 20-22 °C.
