“Vigna del Mulinaccio”
Sangiovese Val d’Arno di Sopra DOC Organic
Made by our best Sangiovese vineyard from the toponym “Il Mulinaccio”.
The low yield per hectare and the agronomic practices performed allow to get
widely-spaced bunches, obtaining an optimal technological and phenological
maturity for a grape of a superior quality.
A deep ruby red wine, with good olfactory intensity, with ripe red fruit, raspberry. Its tertiary aromas are tobacco and a sliglty balsamic closing.
On the taste it is presented with soft and fresh tannins, well balanced, with warm and savory note in closing.
