2019 Ranchelle Millocchio Rosso
A Tuscan blend of Alicante, Sangiovese and Ciliegiolo.
The grapes come from a 60 year old vineyard located on a hill called "Millocchio", near Poggio Murella. It is an assemblage of separate fermentations of Alicante, Sangiovese and Ciliegiolo grapes, spontaneously fermented with wild yeasts, with long maceration on the skins, no substances added and no filtration. The wine is aged for 10 months in 500 litre used oak barrels and another 6 months in bottles before leaving the cellar. Fresh herbs and dark berries. Some grip on the palate, little oak flavours and earthiness, good acidity and great smooth finish.
