Montereggi IGT Toscana 2018, Villa Bibbiani
Super Tuscans are fast becoming recognised for their superior qualities and value for wines of this calibre. From the heart of the Tuscan hills, the vineyard is steeped in talent and history. Worth the wait and a perfect gift for wine buffs.
Grapes are harvested manually with a double sorting of the bunches in both the field and the cellar. They are introduced into steel tanks using gravity to slowly move them downwards and vinified at 25/28 deg C. They stay here for between 15 and 20 days with very gentle punch downs to improve maceration of the grapes and their skins. Malolactic fermentation followed by an 8 month stretch in French oak followed by six months in French oak casks.
Dark intense red colour with a rich blackcurrant, blackberry nose with hints of balsamic and paprika. Silky smooth palate with elegant tannins and plenty of personality. Round, fresh, powerful and longlasting finish.
