Vinification Bruzzico is our IGT wine produced from 30-year-old vines and is a blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon and 50% Sangiovese grapes. The fermentation and break-up take place in stainless steel tanks at a temperature between 28°C and 30°C. This procedure lasts for around 18 days. During this period twice a day pumping over was done alternating with some “delestages”.
Ageing The Sangiovese grapes are aged in 20 hl new oak barrels for approximately 16 months, while the Cabernet Sauvignon grapes are aged separately in barriques. The bottle ageing period successively lasts for 12 months for both grape types.
Colour Very intense ruby red
Perfume Intense and persistent. Very complex with pleasant fruity aromas (plums, cherries and small red berries). Light hints of red fruit combine with evident and delightful spicy fragrances (moos, underwood, tobacco and vanilla).
Taste Structured, powerful, balanced and harmonious. It shows great elegance and ageing potential and an enveloping persistent fragrance.
