Dedicated to the team leader, il sorvegliante, of the old mines, this is another typical Maremma blend with each grape vinified and aged separately for 12 months in barrique and the wine is only assembled at the end, when bottled.
This is a supertuscan with a complex nose where the characteristics scents of the different grapes alternate, like a carousel. On the palate it has a big structure, well balanced with amazing freshness and smooth tannins. 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.
