TOSCANA I.G.T. ROSSO
It is one of the finest expressions in Tuscany of a wine made almost exclusively from Sangiovese: it comes from grapes grown in the Boscogrande and Ginestra vineyards at Podernovo, the Lunelli family’s estate in the hills near Pisa that has been certified as organic since 2012.
A deep, brilliant ruby red in colour.
On the nose it offers a wide, elegant, multi-layered range of fruity fragrances, including notes of plums, sweet cherries and sour cherries in brandy, as well as hints of violets and finally balm-like and spicy tones.
It is rich on the palate, with elegant tannins and well-balanced fruit. The finish is very long indeed.
95% Sangiovese, 5% Merlot.
Teuto comes from a strict selection of grapes from the Boscogrande and Ginestra vineyards within the Estate.
