Maggiarino comes from the vineyards of the eponymous farm, one of the most renowned areas on the La Braccesca estate. A well-balanced wine that expresses the grape variety’s aromas and personality with its silky tannins, typical of the Nobile di Montepulciano territory, a historic Tuscan appellation.
The finest Sangiovese grapes selected from choice vineyards on the Maggiarino farm, one of the most renowned areas of the La Braccesca estate, underwent specific vinification processes aimed at preserving aromas and enhancing its structure. The skins were left in contact with the wine for 20 days in stainless steel vats and then transferred into tonneaux where malolactic fermentation occurred and was left to age for a period of about 12 months. The wine was bottled in spring 2017 and was left to age in the bottle for two additional years before being released in the market.
Maggiarino is an intense ruby red color. On the nose notes of violets, red fruit and vanilla form its complex aromatic profile. On the palate it is supple, balanced and silky sustained by the excellent freshness typical of the Sangiovese grape. Its finish is persistent and mineral.
