IGT Toscana bianco

to Carisio (white)

Vintage 2018

Ageing: twelve months in steel and twelve months in bottle.

Straw yellow colour with greenish reflections.

Fresh and mineral. Intense, delicate and fine with hints of flint.

The style is clean and clear, distinct for a wine so delicate, so subtle. Vibrant freshness and fine flavor. A continuous increase in progression. Always perceivable the minerality of flint as well as a citrine vein of cedar and grapefruit. Softness and alcohol, evolving over time, accentuate the mineral tones.

IGT Toscana rosso

to Carisio (red)

Vintage 2017

Vinification in stainless steel vats, aging: twelve months in tonneaux barrels and a further twelve months in bottle.

Clear ruby red colour.

The olfactory phase goes from scents of cherry and plum fruits to notes of tomato, nettle and thyme to join harmoniously with hints of black pepper, poutpourri and to close with mineral sensations.

The mouthfeel is warm and quite soft. The tannins are young, the sapidity is clear. With a fine body it is a well-balanced wine. In the finish it closes with an aroma of smoke.
