Region: Tuscany, Italy
Fattoria Di Basciano ‘I Pini’ 2018
First produced in 2003. Equal quantities of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah . Each of the three varieties are fermented separately using the same techniques, about 25 days of skin contact during fermentation. The blend is then made and the wines are aged in French oak for 14 months in half new and one year old barrels. After an additional 6 months of refinement in bottle, the wine is released.
Aromatic with blackberry, plum and well integrated hints of vanilla. On the palate it is ripe and full with silky tannins and a long, lingering finish.
