Perfect expression of our closest vineyards to the sea where Syrah reveals all its aromatic qualities and Merlot contributes its classic smoothness. Fermented and matured in stainless steel only it’s a wine of great freshness and saltiness with a nice fruity nose. Its floreal label embodies a contemporary style, representing an authentic voice of the Tuscan cost.
The 2022 vintage was characterized by a mild winter followed by a significant drop in temperatures between March and April. Spring was dry with only one substantial rainfall in April and an important rise in temperatures during the second half of May. During all the summer period the weather was sunny until August the 15th , when a series of rainy days started filling up the water reserves of the soil and assisting the grapes to achieve a perfect ripeness slowly enough to consider the 2022 harvest among the longest in recent years.
The two grape varieties are hand-picked into small 15 kg crates, at separate times in order to harvest the fruit at its optimal physical ripeness and in response to weather conditions. The grapes are vinified individually as well. Merlot receives a gentle whole-cluster pressing, while Syrah is destemmed and the juice undergoes a pre-pressing maceration on the skins for 6-8 hours in the press to preserve and heighten must colour and crispness. A slow, 15-20 day fermentation follows at low temperatures.
The rosé matures 4 months sur lie, with periodic bâttonage, until assemblage of the final blend and successive bottling.
