The grapes are harvested manually and, after destemming and soft crushing, the maceration lasts for 15 days in cement tanks with controlled temperatures. After the maceration, the wine reposes in barrels of 500 litres.

The wine is then aged in the bottle for at least four months.

Organoleptic characteristics
Briccole Riserva has an intense ruby red colour. The aromatic blend includes undertones of blackberry and ripe cherry, together with notes of chocolate and suggestions of coffee. A finely structured and full-bodied wine, soft and elegant on the palate.

Gastronomic combinations
It performs admirably with roasted or grilled meats and mature cheeses. A classic with Florentine steak. Drink at 18-22°C, opening the bottle half an hour before.

DEDICATO

VINSANTO COLLI DELL’ETRURIA CENTRALE
Denominazione di Origine Controllata

This fine wine, typical of Tuscan tradition, starts with a meticulous selection of the best grape bunches. After drying on canes, the grapes are gently pressed and the must is stored in small oak or chestnut barrels. After 8-10 years, the Vinsanto finally sees the light of day, in an explosion of amber reflections and warm aromas. Produced in very few bottles, it is dedicated exclusively to people devoted to truly authentic pleasures.

Dedicato 2009 has obtained 96 points from Luca Maroni on the Annuario dei Migliori Vini Italiani 2020

Grape blend
Tebbiano Toscano and Malvasia

Alcohol content
18% vol.

Training system
Guyot

Harvesting and vinification
The grapes – in colours ranging from brown to pink to amber – are carefully selected during the harvest and picked by hand when they are at peak maturity. The grapes are then left to dry in a well-ventilated room on typical cane structures where they remain until early January, when the imperfect grapes are removed from the bunches. With a small manual press the grapes are then gently pressed and the resulting must is poured into small oak or chestnut barrels, where it ferments and matures for 8-10 years before being bottled.

Production
600 bottles of 0.5 L

Organoleptic characteristics
Dedicato has an amber hue flecked with golden reflections. On the nose, sweet fragrances of dried fruit, nuts and acacia honey, all also found in the mouth enlivened by spicy notes. Persistent and robustly structured, pleasurably sweet, it leaves the palate satisfyingly clean.

Gastronomic combinations
Superb accompanying mature cheeses, dry pastries and dark chocolate. In Tuscany, it is traditionally drunk with cantuccini almond biscuits. Taste at 10-15°C.
