2014 Maremma Toscana DOC Capoccia
85% Ciliegiolo & 15% Alicante
Although Sangiovese is the predominant grape found throughout Tuscany, in the Marremma area there are others that have and show wonderful character. Ciliegiolo and Alicante are two that come to mind. Harvested near the beginning of September they undergo seperate controlled fermentations at 27°C in stainless steel; allowed to rest upon the lees for about 2 months they are then blended in January and refined in bottle for at least 2 more months prior to release.
A vibrant ruby red with notes of violet; rich aromas of small red fruits and scents of violets; a soft palate, supple and round body, fresh and inviting with medium tannins, good length. Serve in glasses best used for young wines at a temperature slightly chilled (16°C). A wine for all pasta dishes or even as an aperitif.
