The Wine

A Sangiovese from the Tuscan Maremma within the Montecucco DOCG appellation and aged in French toasted oak barrels. A complex and firmly structured wine thanks to the good pedo-climatic features of Vigne a Porrona that lies on the gentle hills on the slopes of Mount Amiata a few kilometres from the Tyrrhenian Sea.
: The 2019 vintage stands out for its aromas of macerated mixed spring flowers, dried cherry, bark, espresso, ash and spice woody notes. Medium to full-bodied with firm tannins. Mouthfeel sensations of great freshness and pleasantness of taste. Full-flavoured on the finish.
Pairing: Villa di Nozzole suggest pairing it with ravioli filled with wild boar and cinnamon and roast and parmesan sauce.
First vintage: 2008
