Tasting notes:“di Testa Mia” is our top wine, the 2015 it’s the first vintage that we produce, and it’s a limited edition because we had produce only 1200 bottles of this wine.
It’s a single-vineyard wine from the most suitable area of the Orcia Doc, between Montalcino and Castiglione d’Orcia. It has notes of ripe cherry, dry plum, tobacco and white chocolate with smooth elegant tannins. In the mouth its vibrant acidity appeals to those with a preference for the traditional Tuscan Sangiovese. Although di Testa mia is ready to drink it deserves to be refined in the bottle to achieve its maximum expression. Extended ageing brings out complexity and soft, supple tannins along with delightful fruit and spice that linger on.
Serve with: pasta with meat sauce, game, roast and braised red meat, mature cheese
