Why we love it
The blend of selected Sangiovese e Ciliegiolo produce the Cavalpoggio Toscana Rosso, an everyday, a very versatile red wine.
The Cavalpoggio Toscana Rosso is a fruity wine with the typical nose of a sangiovese based wine, fruity, spicy. In the palate the wine is medium bodied, with soft tannins, balanced and refreshing with a fruity finish. The Cavalpoggio Toscana Rosso pairs beautifully pizza and tomato based pasta but find its perfect matches in roasts, poultry and red meat such as the Bistecca alla Fiorentina.
The artisan who made it
The generations of winemakers of the Ziantoni family are lost in time. San Luciano comes from the flourishing Roman hills of Marino where they have always made wine, white wine. In 1972, due to the urban expansion towards the countryside Ovidio Ziantoni moved from Lazio to Tuscany, purchasing the property of San Luciano, in the territory of Monte San Savino (Ar), upper Val di Chiana, a property with a small church dedicated to San Luciano from which the winery take its name.
Coming from a land with a white wine tradition to a land famous for its red wines, Ovidio decides to plant the grapes he is familiar with, the grapes he has grown with, Trebbiano, Malvasia, Grechetto e Vermentino together with the traditional Tuscan grapes, Sangiovese and Ciliegiolo, and some Montepulciano. With the new generation, with Stefano and Marco, the winery grows with the addition of more vineyards and grapes, the international Chardonnay, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon.
