In a Nutshell

A Tuscan Malbec - a must try!

Tasting Notes

Rather intense ruby ​​red colour. The nose is complex, the notes of ripe black fruit alternate sweetly with spicy and vanilla scents. On the palate it is silky, enveloping and with a good persistence with notes of ripe black fruit, liquorice and coffee on the finish.

Production Notes

The freshly picked, de-stemmed and softly pressed grapes were transferred into stainless steel tanks. The first phase of maceration, the pre-fermentative cold, occurred with a lowering of the temperature between 5 and 10 ° C for 3- 4 days, in order to ensure the extraction of aromatic substances and anthocyanins present in the skins. Subsequently the must temperature has been increased to allow the introduction of selected yeasts; the fermentation took place at a controlled temperature of 30 ° C and the maceration, managed in a delicate way to allow a controlled extraction of sweet tannins, lasted for about a week. The wine has been transferred to French oak barrels to complete the malolactic fermentation and move towards aging, which lasted about 10 months. Vie Cave 2015 rested for 14 months in bottle before being put on the market.
