    Winemaker Notes

    THE GRAPES: 70% Sangiovese Grosso and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon (grafted on canaiolo intermediate) VINEYARD: in the Commune of Castellina, in Chianti. The soil is mainly alberese mixed with marl and limestone. The training system is Guyot simple and double with only 50 quintals/ha yield. VINIFICATION: Cabernet is picked in mid-October, sangiovese grosso ten days later. The grapes are vinified separately in "red" with 15-18 days maceration and frequent pumping over; for sangiovese the maceration time is longer because the extraction of the color and tannins is more consistent and slower. Fermentation with selected yeasts, at a controlled temperature of 25°C. AGING: 3 years in Limousin oak. This type of wood is normally used for grappa aging. Before use, the barrels are drained with a special hot treatment of steamed water and salt. The wine is aged for at least 6 months in bottle before being released. CHARACTERISTICS: Intense ruby red with a tendency towards garnet hues. The bouquet is prominent, elegant with distinct varietal notes (violets, iris, aromatic hay) and pleasant hints of raspberry jam, cloves and vanilla. The taste is dry, warm and clean, austere with a distinct finish of toasted almonds and fruits. TECHNICAL DATA: Alcohol 13.9%; total acidity 5.40 g/l; pH 3.19 sugar 1.89 g/l; extract 25.71 g/l. AGING POTENTIAL: 15 years or more. GASTRONOMIC SUGGESTIONS: Red meats, roasted or braised, especially veal, game, truffle dishes, cheese.

    Fattorie Melini, Italy
    Fattorie Melini Terra Rossa Winery Image

    Fattorie Melini is the top range of Tuscan wines from Melini, a historic Chianti estate since 1705. The Fattorie line uses only 100% estate-grown grapes from Chianti’s most renowned vineyards, creating benchmark wines such as “La Selvanella”, the first single vineyard wine in Chianti. Alessandro Zanette represents the new generation of winemaking at Fattorie Melini, continuing in the footsteps of Marco Galeazzo and the patriarch and esteemed oenologist Nunzio Capurso. The winery, located in Gaggiano di Poggibonsi, sits carved out of a steep 1,800-foot hillside; benefitting from this design, multi-stage fermenters accomplish the progressive phases of vinification by gravity rather than forced pumping. Old Limousin casks rather than the more common Slavonian are used for aging each of the Chiantis.

    Legendary in Italy for its Renaissance art and striking landscape, Tuscany is also home to many of the country’s best red wines. Sangiovese reigns supreme here, as either the single varietal, or a dominant player, in almost all of Tuscany’s best.

    A remarkable Chianti, named for its region of origin, will have a bright acidity, supple tannins and plenty of cherry fruit character. From the hills and valleys surrounding the medieval village of Montalcino, come the distinguished and age-worthy wines based on Brunello (Sangiovese). Earning global acclaim since the 1970s, the Tuscan Blends are composed solely of international grape varieties or a mix of international and Sangiovese. The wine called Vine Nobile di Montepulciano, composed of Prognolo Gentile (Sangiovese) and is recognized both for finesse and power.
