The best puncheons of our estate grown grapes are selected for CENT’ANNI. The blend is Montepulciano, Sangiovese clone 3, Sangiovese clone 6, Sangiovese clone 23, Sangiovese Rodino clone, Colorino and Caniaolo. Our goal is to make Sangiovese, from Sanguis Jovis, “the blood of Jove”, prudently blended with traditional Tuscan varietal grapes.
CENT’ANNI is barrel fermented in 500 liter upright wooden oak puncheons and aged three years in neutral oak puncheons in our cold cellar. The wine is a classic old world style Sangiovese full of earth tones, violets and intense cherry backed by resolved tannins and good acidity for long cellar aging. The wine is balanced and powerful, and is at its best with some additional aging in bottle or with appropriate foods - especially grilled steaks.
