Maremma DOC is a fast-rising star on the Italian wine scene. Based on the Supertuscan blend of Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grapes. Ruby red colour tending to garnet with ageing. Bouque, fruitiness with notes of cherries and white chocolate. Taste, great complexity, dry, warm with balsamic finish.
CHIANTI - We look at wine flowing into a goblet, we see the film it leaves on the glass, we smell its fragrances, some near and pungent, others that seem to come from afar and to carry within themselves perfumes of fruits and spices, we are rapt in its hues of jewels and blood, and we drink it, we savour it, we appreciate it, we toast with it, we make it the occasion for togetherness and smiles, but very seldom we pause to think how that magic liquid, closed in a bottle in front of us, came to be.
