Magnum 3l Volpaio Red Wine

Year 2005

Tuscany I.G.T.

An enveloping and silky softness for this excellent Tuscan IGT wine.

The Volpaio RED Selection is a blend of two clones of Sangiovese selected in-home: an intense ruby red colour, its complexity on the nose is dominated by the floral bouquet, red fruits and black and red berry aromas with hints of black cherries and cherry liqueur with notes of vanilla, coffee and liquorice, wrapped in a snug and silky softness, but persistent at the same time. We suggest serving it in a large glass.

Wine-making techniques

The freshly picked grapes are de-stemmed and gently pressed, then introduced into stainless steel tanks where the vinification phase of the red grapes begins, with the maceration on the skins for 15-20 days, with a careful management of the extraction process by means of pumping and Délestage at temperatures not exceeding 29°C. Once the alcoholic fermentation is completed, the wine is first stored in stainless steel tanks, and afterwards in concrete tanks for at least 54/60 months, after which it is poured in small French 225l oak barrels where it remains for about 6 months, then it is bottled and aged in the bottle for another 12 months before being marketed.
