Controlled designation of origin

Description

General informations

WINE:
This wine is the result of a careful selection of grapes harvested in the vineyards with the best exposure in order to obtain a Brunello of unparalleled fineness and elegance.

SOIL:
Sandy clay with fossils, marl, and plenty of limestone.

PLANT DENSITY:
5,000 plants/ha.

TRAINING SYSTEM:
Spurred cordon.

VARIETY:
100% Sangiovese grosso.

VINIFICATION:
Soft pressing, fermentation in temperature-controlled steel vats at 26°-28°C with moderate pumping over; maceration on the skins for 15-20 days with further maceration after fermentation at 28°-30°C.

AGEING:
36 months in 25-60ql oak barrels in addition to two years of bottle ageing.

AGEING POTENTIAL:
Gualto is a wine that has considerable ageing potential by virtue of the outstanding quality of its raw material, which was carefully selected in the vineyard. Even after ten years, the wine’s original elegance will still be present.

NOTES:
The fabric and elegance of this wine, as a result of clonal selection, choice of terrain, as well as thinning out of the vines before and during the harvest, make it suitable for long ageing. It will be interesting to open a bottle after some years with the trepidation of the wait and of the emotion of discovery to experience magical sensations.
No particular pairings are necessary even if the complexity of the bouquet and the importance of the structure make it perfect for important occasions.
