Wine of great structure, fleshy, with evident but silky tannins; an important and persistent aroma on the palate, fruity and spicy. We perceive a beautiful menthol in the opening.

CARMIGNANO DOCG “CARMIONE”

Carmignano is one of the oldest wines in Italy.

The first written documentation where the name of a Carmignano wine appears dates back to 1396: it’s a document where a notary of Carmignano, Ser Lapo Mazzei, communicates to a merchant of Prato, Marco Datini, that he has ordered for his cellar fifteen some (ancient unit of measurement) of Charmignano wine paying a price four times higher than that of the wines of the area (which demonstrated its superior qualities).

The Carmignano region was the first DOC in Tuscany to use the Cabernet Sauvignon and Sangiovese blend; so Carmignano can be considered the progenitor of the Super Tuscan wines (great Tuscan wines obtained by adding to the Sangiovese international vines such as Cabernet-Sauvignon or Merlot).

A wine of great structure, fleshy, soft, with intense but perfectly silky tannins. Rich and persistent in fruity and herbaceous/spicy notes.

Of a very intense ruby ​​red color with light garnet nuances.
