Wine Profile
Wine Profile / Tasting Notes
Rose-petal, new leather, camphor and pine-forest aromas are front and center on this lithe, elegant red. Medium bodied and loaded with finesse, the almost ethereal palate features pomegranate, blood orange, star anise and rusty nail alongside taut, polished tannins. Bright acidity keeps it vibrant.
Vineyard Notes
"Vigna Piaggia", south-west exposition. Average yield: 50 quintals/Ha
Production Notes
After the fermentation in stainless steel tanks lasting 18 days, the wine is transferred to Slavonian oak barrels where it spends 36 months. After that is moved for 12 more months in stainless steel tanks to rest and reintegrate and, in the end the refinement is completed with 12 final months of bottle aging.
Winemaker Notes
This wine is the most complex and elegant expression of the Sangiovese grape variety. It is produced with the grapes from the vineyard “Piaggia”. The excellent exposure and exceptional pedoclimate lend this wine great personality and balance.
Food & Wine Pairing
For every moment of relaxation and meditation. Perfect with grilled meat, middle-seasoned cheeses and truffle.
More Information
Abbadia Ardenga, a winery which is part of the history of Brunello di Montalcino, is extremely special and definitely worth visiting, not only for its products but also for its outstanding charm. The estate has a very long history, having once belonged to the powerful Piccolomini family, whose members included Pope Pius II, responsible for the construction of the town of Pienza, a masterpiece of the Renaissance.
