FATTORIA DI CALAPPIANO
Toscana IGT Sangiovese
It is produced from a selection of the best grapes grown on a hilly soil made of arenaceous, calcareous-marly substrates and sandy schists rich in marine fossils and bones. It is fermented for 15 days at a temperature of 22-25°C, then macerated for 20-25 days at 28-29°C in steel tanks. It is aged in large barrel for 12-14 months. Made from 100% Sangiovese grapes. With a clear and bright ruby color, the aroma opens on an elegant bouquet of small crunchy red fruits, fine spices, light smoky sensations and floral hints. On the palate it is rich and lively at the same time, fresh, juicy and tasty with a long persistence of spices, red fruits and light smoky hints.
