Colli della Toscana Centrale IGT Rosso “Murtas” 2013

Our Super Tuscan by the name of Murtas Terzuoli has always been the cellar master of the Fattoria San Michele, giving his name to the most prestigious wines of the company. The evidence of hard work, not only from Murtas Terzuoli, but from everyone who works on the property is apparent in all of our products. There is a guarantee that each and every product has been cared for in a meticulous manner by many many people. Without their incredible hard work, the Fattoria wouldn’t be able to maintain its distinguished excellence. The Cabernet Sauvignon comes from the Vigna Nuova di Buonriposo, the Sangiovese is a selection coming from the best vines on the Fattoria and the Colorino is a clone that the company found from an old vine in which they salvaged. This becomes a vine of tremendous structure, a wine that can be consumed at a young age but is still best after aging 5/7 years.

The tannins ad more softness by polymerizing and leaving the wine with all of its force. In fact it maintains its freshness even after many years, demonstrating rich aromas and remaining a color full of life. It is a wonderful surprise for those who do not know this wine already.

Vines: The grapes used are Sangiovese (40%), the Cabernet Sauvignon (40%) and the Colorino (20%)

Soil: The soil is semi soft with tendencies of clay. There is a large amount of bones present which makes the terrain, on average, relatively fertile.

Training: The training method used is sapling, with planting density 7,000 vines / hectare.

Harvest: The grapes are left on the plant until they are slightly overripe, then the individual grapes are harvested and fermented.

Soaking and fermentation: The grapes become softer daily optimally extracting polyphenols from the skin. The fermentation process takes about 25 days.

Aging: The Sangiovese are transferred into 25hl oak barrels while the Colorino and the Cabernet Sauvignon are put in barriques. The wine remains in the wood for 18 months. The union of these 3 wines are combined some time before the bottling in order for them to amalgamate. The proportions are usually 40% Sangiovese and Cabernet while the remaining 20% is Colorino. However, this of course may vary according to the characteristics of every single grape. After the wine is bottled we prefer to wait at least 6 months to sell the wine.

Appearance: Red Ruby color dense with soft violet hue reflections.

Aroma: Intense persistent notes of tobacco and coffee, while also fruity with floral nuances.

Taste: Warm, soft, fruity with elegant tannins, hints of toast to finish.

Considerations: Murtas IGT is a balanced wine that is best opened within 5/7 years after harvest.

Pairings: A great wine best when combined with many second courses such as wild boar,  bittersweet hare, roasts and of course the Florentine Steak. The tannins contrast the succulence of the meat while the alcohol cleans the pallet and wash down the fatty flavor.

Colli della Toscana Centrale Igt Rosso “ChicchiRossi” 2015

Chicchirossi is a wine produced within the Hills of Central Tuscany with Red Malvasia, Ciliegiolo, Canaiolo, and Montepulciano grapes. The grapes are picked by hand, placed in boxes and transported in the corporate center where they are passed to the Bank of sorting. This system of collection and selection of grapes, although more expensive than traditional, allows us to increase greatly the quality of our wine. During the sorting, all of the grapes are removed not perfectly ripe. We are careful not to leave pieces of stalk and leaves that if vinified can lower the quality of the wine. We chose not to use for this wine Sangiovese, instead we wanted to enhance the complementary vines of Chianti such as the Red Malvasia and Ciliegiolo which give a very fruity flavor, and the Canaiolo and Montepulciano which give nice body and roundness. The result is a very charming wine that is aged for one year in barriques before being bottled.
