Il Nonno

“To celebrate the 75th birthday of my father, Nonno, we decided to produce an exceptional wine. A wine like him and which, I am sure, you will be fond of…”

« The Thoroughbred of Vines »

This is a thoroughbred so to speak, made from wonderful Merlot grapes from the 2017 vintage. This nectar already boasts great elegance and an intensity capable of mesmerizing the most discerning palates.

When creating this wine, we wished, not only to demonstrate our love for nonno, but also to illustrate the very essence of our devotion to our work, as well as showcasing the tradition and riches of our land. The splendid bottle is adorned with a golden label symbolizing a wedding band. There are just sixty-five bottles for each size (Jeroboam, Double-Magnum, Magnum and Bordelaise).

Each bottle is numbered and signed.

This exclusive wine resembles our father; it is natural and without artifice. It is a great deal more than an organic wine; it is an emotive wine, which no label can hold sway over – it is a free wine!

  • Vintage : 2017
  • Denomination : Toscana I.G.T
  • Vineyard : Northern exposure
  • Harvest : By hand in crates around mid-October.
  • Vinification : Delicate destemming of the grapes; temperature-controlled fermentation and maceration in steel vats for about 15 days with 2 pump-overs per day and some delestages.
  • Maturation : Approximately 24 months in French oak barrels for the Sangiovese, and in French oak barrels for the Merlot. Then at least 18 months of maturation in bottle before release.
  • Grape variety : 100% Merlot
  • Alcohol content : 14,5%
  • Tasting notes : This 100% Merlot nectar has a sublime ruby red colour with purple hues. The aromatic palette of this wine is complex and finds its balance between chocolate, prune, black cherry and more animal touches of leather. The vintage of this wine was sunny, giving it a round, fleshy and unctuous texture on the palate. Finally, this variety brings a certain freshness to the final product.
  • Pairing : Il Nonno will enhance your Bistecca alla Fiorentina or a braised roast with your favourite mature cheese for dessert. This Merlot also goes well with gourmet dishes; vegetables roasted with care will be a real delight!
  • Service temperature : 18° - 20°
