Fattoria Aldobrandesca Vie Cave Malbec Toscana IGT

2018

In a Nutshell

A Tuscan Malbec - a must try!

Tasting Notes

Vie Cave 2018 is an intense ruby red color. Its nose is captivating and complex: notes of dark ripe fruit, blackberries and blueberries, alternate with spicy hint of vanilla. The palate is balanced and well-defined by silky tannins. Its lengthy, persistent finish is accented with aromas perceived on the nose accompanied by pleasant hints of coffee and dark chocolate.

Production Notes

Once harvested, the grapes were brought to the cellar, destemmed, gently pressed and transferred into stainless steel tanks. The first phase was pre-fermentation cold maceration performed by lowering the temperature to 5-10 °C (41-50 °F) for 3 to 4 days in order to extract aromatic compounds and anthocyanins from the skins. The temperature of the must was then increased to allow alcoholic fermentation to take place at a controlled temperature of 30 °C (86 °F). Maceration techniques were carried out delicately for controlled extraction of soft tannins over a period of approximately one week. The wine was transferred into French oak barriques to complete malolactic fermentation and begin aging which lasted for approximately 10 months. Via Cave 2018 was aged in the bottle for an additional period before being released for sale.
