Strongly hot and dry vintage that caused a severe drop in production, also due to a carefully selection of grape bunches.
100% Sangiovese from a 6 hectares (15-acre)
vineyard planted in 1993/94 at a density of 6.500 vines per hectares (2,600 vines per acre), trained in “Alberello”, “Bush” system. Grape production: 5000 kg/Ha.
Calcareous-clayey mixture. Exposure south-west. Altitude 300 m.
The fruit is carefully selected and hand-harvested in small crates when it reaches the full ripeness.
Soft press and destemming. Fermented in stainless steel tanks. “Ombroso” is produced only in the best vintages; therefore we allow a prolonged skin-contact maceration. It spends 12 to 15 months in French Tonneaux – 50% new, and 50% of second and third year. Following a very light filtration the wine rests in the bottle for 2 years, before release
Dense ruby red.
Intense nose of blackberry, sour cherry and violet with delicate balsamic and spicy notes.
The palate shows an excellent balance and assertive, tasty tannins, and is supported by freshness and sapidity in a deep and juicy finish.
Serving temp. 18°C.
