Toscana Rosso I.G.T. 2012

This wine is made from selected Sangiovese and Montepulciano grapes, from the Cresta del Gallo vineyards, located in Monte S. Savino –Arezzo hills. The careful and meticulous wine-making procedure in steel, with fermentation under controlled temperature, a well-cared seasoning in French oak casks and then in bottles for 2 or 3 months, in a thermo-conditioned space, distinguish this particular wine, before it is put on the market. Best served with high-quality meat, game, braised red meat.
