Vintage 2011

REGION:
DOC Cortona, Tuscany, Italy

GRAPE VARIETY:
100% Syrah

PRODUCTION:
This wine consists entirely of Syrah grapes planted by Tenimenti d'Alessandro between 1997 and 2002 with a variable density ranging from 7,000 to 8,500 plants per hectare.

The wine is the result of harvesting the youngest vineyards and meets the objective to excel in terms of fruitiness purity, generosity and fullness.

From the perspective of wine management, this wine distinguishes itself from Il Bosco by a greater plant productivity (around 1 kg.) and for the mechanization of certain operations.

During fermentation, macerations are generally shorter (around 15 days) compared to those forced to the must for Il Bosco selection, in order to obtain an immediate fruity and smooth pleasantness.
