Tenuta San Giorgio Rosso di Montalcino “Ciampoleto” DOCG 2016
A soft and pleasant rosso marked with the characteristic acidity of Sangiovese Grosso. Ruby red with violet reflections. The rich nose expresses ripe notes of candied cherry and black plum with hints of oak extract and chocolate. The flat and harmonious palate possesses juicy blackberry and mild spice flavours. A classic wine with a fresh taste, soft tannins and nice complexity. Closes off with a persistent, fruity finish.
Fun fact: the name “Ciampoleto” is used to describe the hills cultivated in the Sienese area, which are well-known for their mild climates and favourable exposure.
Sourced from Tenuta san Giorgio’s vineyards located at an altitude of 450 metres above sea level with clay and heavy stone soils. All the grapes unused in the production of the famous Brunello di Montalcino are converged in this wine. Fermentation occurs spontaneously in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. After the malolactic fermentation, the wine ages for 1 year in 30 hl oak casks with an additional 6 months in bottle.
