Harvest and Winemaking
The grapes are hand selected and sorted for quality, coming from our best vineyards- from the highest hill facing southwest. The vine training is cordon/spur.Nicole is the result of a natural fermentation of our Sangiovese grapes, without any enological additives. The vinification takes place in large wooden barrels, with pumping down occurring daily. Ageing occurs in 40Hl wooden barrels for about 10 months, and then bottled without filtration.
Ruby red in color, Nicole is an example of the elegance and refinement that Sangiovese can achieve. Tannins are present, but are soft and well-integrated. Intriguing and complex aromas, with red fruits well-known to the grape variety. An extraordinarily balanced and harmonious red wine.
Well suited for sausages, traditiona Tuscan pasta dishes, semi-aged cheeses, red meats and offal, and tripe. It beautifully pairs with tomato and fish soup.
