VILLA La pagliaia

This wine is the fruit of the painstaking selection of the finest Sangiovese grapes grown in few selected parcels of the Estate vineyards. After the fermentation in steel, followed by a 22-day maceration, the wine is aged for 24 months part in Slavonian oak casks and part in 500 liters French oak barrels and a further 8-10 months in bottle. Deep ruby red, the nose releases scents of dried plum, blackberry and raspberry. Full-bodied wine with velvety tannins and a well integrated acidity.

Perfect with wild game, grills and BBQs, as well as with aged ‘pecorino’ cheese.

2015 will be remembered as one of the warmest in recent years; to a mild winter and a spring with regular rainfall, succeeded a hot summer with rare precipitations. Good weather conditions allowed a good quantity and excellent quality production, with perfect phenolic maturation in all vineyards, guaranteeing wines suitable for long aging
