Fattoria Selvapiana Villa Petrognano Pomino DOC

Tasting Notes

Deep ruby red in colour, this wine has a rich bouquet of red and black fruits on the nose. The palate is rounded and rich, with the Sangiovese bringing lively acidity to the richer, blackcurrant notes of the Cabernet, and the supple tannins of the Merlot.

Production Notes

Fruit was hand harvested. After destemming and pressing, fermentation took place partly in temperature-controlled, stainless-steel vats, and partly in wooden vats at 28-30°C. Maceration lasted for 25 days, with daily pumping over. After malolactic fermentation, the wine was aged for 18 months; the Sangiovese was aged in 25 hectolitre French oak casks, while the Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot were aged in smaller French oak barriques. The final blend took place in stainless steel, after which the wine was bottled and aged for a further six months in bottle prior to release.
