danzante Tuscan Red Blend

Winemaker's Notes

The grapes are harvested upon full maturation during September. The wine is vinified using an average maceration time of 8 to 10 days. Temperature is controlled (28-29 °C) during the fermentation to encourage the release of attractive tannins and to develop a clear ruby color, while maintaining the rich fruit aromas of the grape. After fermentation, the wine is kept in stainless steel temperature-controlled tanks for 8 months
