Grandi Annate

Toscana I.G.T. Sangiovese 2016


Pairing

Probably the most characteristic Sangiovese selection Montepulciano can offer. Structured and harmonious, it can be enjoyed today and in the next twenty years. It is the wine for great occasions!
The silky tannins pair, of course, perfectly with roasts, typical Fiorentina steak (T-bone) or other juicy meat dishes, but also with game, birds or poultry, which enhance its aromatic nuances.


T he Grandi Annate is only produced during the best vintages. The philosophy behind this wine is to highlight the best traits of Sangiovese from Tuscany. This wine is a keeper. Lay it down, wait and enjoy it later due to its fantastic ageing potential.
Grandi Annate 2016 amazes for its freshness and enveloping notes of wild strawberry and liquorice. On the palate it is rich and luxurious, with a creamy vanilla aftertaste. A real ambassador for its habitat, it brings balance and elegance to a slight acidic start.
