    Winemaker Notes

    It is made up mostly from Sangiovese grapes cultivated in "Muraccio", an area of the estate at the foot of the hills, protected on the southern part by the mediterranean scrub. The maceration and the fermentation take place in steel tanks. under controlled temperature. The wine stays then in oak barrels for 10 months and for another 4 months in the bottles.

    The grapes: Sangiovese 80%, Cabernet 10%, Merlot10%

    Characteristics:
    Color: ruby-red with a little touch of garnet.
    Aroma: is intense and reminds of violet. rose and fine jam of little red fruits. In your mouth it is fresh and vivid as a consequence of the delicate balance teween tannin, acidity and alcohol. It is a pleasant wine; it fills your mouth but leaves it dry, reflecting in this way the relation between faste and aroma.

    La Parrina, Tuscany, Italy
    The Parrina estate in the Tuscan Maremma, took shape at the beginning of the nineteenth century following the marriage of a daughter of the Strozzi family to a Giuntini. It has remained in the hands of the Giuntini family ever since, with the Marquess Franca Spinola as the current owner. La Parrina comprises 450 hectares (ha) stretching over foothills along the Tyrhennian coast, south of Grosseto. Is is immersed in Mediterranean scrub: lands characterised by an abundance of intensely perfumed herbs and berries. The estate in close to the Argentario promontory, the location giving a climate marked by prevailing sea breezes and warm summers, while heavy rainfali is restricted to spring and autumn. As a result the grapes remain healthy and ripen fully.

    One of the most iconic Italian regions for wine, scenery and history, Tuscany is the world’s most important outpost for the Sangiovese grape. Ranging in style from fruity and simple to complex and age-worthy, Sangiovese makes up a significant percentage of plantings here, with the white Trebbiano Toscano coming in second.

    Within Tuscany, many esteemed wines have their own respective sub-zones, including Chianti, Brunello di Montalcino and Vino Nobile di Montepulciano. The climate is Mediterranean and the topography consists mostly of picturesque rolling hills, scattered with vineyards.

    Sangiovese at its simplest produces straightforward pizza-friendly wines with bright and juicy red fruit, but at its best it shows remarkable complexity and ageability. Top-quality Sangiovese-based wines can be expressive of a range of characteristics such as sour cherry, balsamic, dried herbs, leather, fresh earth, dried flowers, anise and tobacco. Brunello expresses well the particularities of vintage variations and is thus popular among collectors. Chianti is associated with tangy and food-friendly dry wines at various price points. A more recent phenomenon as of the 1970s is the “Super Tuscan”—a wine made from international grape varieties like Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Syrah, with or without Sangiovese. These are common in Tuscany’s coastal regions like Bolgheri, Val di Cornia, Carmignano and the island of Elba.

    With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World, experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to enhance balance or create complexity, lending different layers of flavors and aromas. For example, a variety that creates a fruity and full-bodied wine would do well combined with one that is naturally high in acidity and tannins. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
