Wine Profile
Wine Profile / Tasting Notes
Prezioso, AKA the Precious one, is dark ruby red in color. On the nose it has spicy notes with a prevalence of cinnamon and vanilla, evidently connected to the barrel ageing. Hints of Morello cherry, plum and violet. The taste is full, harmonious and warm. Good structure with elegant tannins from the barrel aging and bottle refinement. Keywords: high alcohol content, important structure.
Vineyard Notes
Vineyard location: San Casciano dei Bagni, Siena. Soil type: mix of Alberese and Galestro, rich in clay. Yields: 6 tons per hectare.
Production Notes
Fermentation in wood tanks at controlled temperature with selected yeasts. Maceration post fermentation of 10/15 days. Aged in French oak barrels for 36 months and then in the bottle for 4 months. Can be stored for 2–3 years.
Winemaker Notes
This wine brought us a great deal of satisfaction with many awards including being judge more than once as "Miglior Vino d'Italia" (Best Wine of Italy) by Luca Maroni. With its extreme high quality, the beuatiful and elegant packaging, Prezioso represents the present of Cantine Ravazzi. The perfect bottle for a special occasion or for a gift for somebody special.
Food & Wine Pairing
Best paired with roasted meat, and aged cheese. Please serve in balloon-shaped wine goblets to do it justice.
More Information
The 2017 vintage was characterized by extreme weather events, a harsh winter with low rainfall, spring hailstorms and a summer period hot and dry. All this strongly influenced the vegetative-productive activity of the vineyards and drastically reduced yields. The 2017 vintage gave Prezioso a slightly less intense color than the previous vintages, but with a beautiful structure and characterized by a big tannic structure.
