Why we love it
Another fantastic supertuscan, this time a blend of Merlot and Cabernet vinified and aged in barrique, aged for 12 months. br>
Complex, intense with a nose where the black fruit of the merlot combines with the heartiness of the cabernet franc and the ageing notes. On the palate the wine has a big structure, smooth, lively and persistent with a mineral finish. Outstanding
The artisan who made it
Rigoloccio is a winery located in the heart of the Maremma, Tuscany, that takes its name from Rigoloccio, stream in Tuscan dialect, name given to the pyrite mine discovered in 1898 that was once where the winery is, providing plenty of minerals to the grapes.
Rigoloccio is a small winery with about 8 hectares of vineyards surrounded by olive and cork trees with a very low yield to ensure the best possible quality for the grapes and each vineyard, cru, and grape is fermented separately and only at the end they are blended. The vineyards, located between 40m and 100m asl, benefit of the sea breeze with very cold night essential when wanting to make great wines.
