Centine

Toscana IGT - Rosso

Centine Style

GRAPE VARIETIES

Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot.

Method of production

The grapes are vinified with a brief maceration. Once the alcoholic and malolactic fermentations are completed, the wine is aged for a short period in small oak barrels and bottled in the Spring following the harvest. An appropriate bottle aging follows.

The winemaker comment

The best tradition of the Sangiovese grape in Tuscany that, with Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, allows a youthful and intensely fruity blend. The ideal companion of simple dishes but also suitable for more complex matches.
