Vigna dell'Impero 1935
Valdarno di Sopra Sangiovese DOC
Vinified with pure Sangiovese from a historic vineyard dating back to 1935 and particularly suited for its type. Given its uniqueness and in order to bring out the best of the peculiarities of this estate Cru, it starts with a particularly soft and long maceration of about a month, aimed at enhancing all the noble components of the grape, harvested at ideal phenolic ripeness. It then ages in large 15 and 25 hl barrels for about 24 months, and in the bottle for a few months.
Finally, it is not filtered, precisely to preserve all the varietal notes that are typical and characteristic of Sangiovese, but above all of the territory from which it originates.
So it has a bright ruby color with garnet hues, a definite nose of leather and tobacco, along with notes of wild flowers and fresh fruit, the tannins in the mouth are present, but silky and velvety. Warmth, power and roundness complement a savory, mineral finish.
