Why we love it
The Petit Verdot is a French grape grown in Italy only in Maremma where it has found its perfect climate and it is often used in blends, from Bordeaux to Supertuscany, to add tannins, color and flavour.
Here Bruno has been able to tame the grape, producing an outstanding wine, aged in French barriques for 14 months, with and intense and elegant nose with liquorices, black pepper and balsamic notes. In the mouth it is elegant, smooth, with a never ending aftertaste.
The artisan who made it
The Cacciagrande winery is located in Maremma, south-western Tuscany, bordering the Ligurian and Tyrrhenian Seas, a few kilometres away from the medieval town of Castiglione della Pescaia. Surrounded by truly breathtaking views, Bruno produces fantastic wines using the traditional and ever present Sangiovese grape along with more international varieties such as Petit Verdot and Viognier that have found in Maremma a new home.
