La Torre alle Tolfe Rosato Lunella
Torre alle Tolfe Rosato Lunella
Rosato Lunella
100% Sangiovese
Salmon pink. A note of Campari and sweet strawberry fruit on the nose and with daring high volatile acidity. Animating orange and sweet strawberry palate with a hint of iron and with a velvety texture. Long and complex and definitely walking a fine line.
Harvest: Hand picked and selected in mid to end September. Vinification: Sangiovese and Canaiolo drawn off (saigne) from red wine tanks after a skin maceration of a few hours. One third fermented in tonneaux, two thirds in stainless steel, without temperature control. Spontaneous alcoholic and malo-lactic fermentation.

La Torre alle Tolfe Canaiolo
Torre alle Tolfe Canaiolo
Canaiolo Rosso Toscano IGT

100% Canaiolo

Focused, fragrant and refreshing, the Canaiolo is vibrant in colour - a vivid ruby, and in primary red fruit and floral aromas. Red cherry, cranberry and rose aromas translate directly on to the palate. In the mouth the wine feels lithe, lighter in tannins and body than the Sangiovese, less broad yet equally refined and superbly drinkable.
Harvest: Hand picked end September, with a selection of grapes.

Vinification: Fermented in concrete tanks. Skin contact of 30 days.

Harvest: Hand picked mid September for Canaiolo and Colorino, late September for Sangiovese.
Vinification: Fermented in concrete tanks at max. 30C. Maceration lasts 7 days for Canaiolo and Colorino, 10 days for Sangiovese
