Rosso di Toscana I.G.T.
On the Via Cassia for Florence, one kilometer from the center of Tavarnelle is the Voltaccia, a small fraction of four houses. In one of these, in 1949 the Corti family winery was founded. To celebrate our 60th birthday, we have produced this wine, a full-bodied, soft and elegant wine, a perfect synthesis between tradition and innovation.
The grapes come from a single particle of 1.5 hectares entirely cultivated with Merlot with Franco-Argilloso soil at an altitude of 370 meters above sea level.
Alcoholic fermentation in cement vats with three weeks on the skins, three pumpovers a day and two Delestages during fermentation. It matures in French oak tonneaux and partly in cement vats for about 12 months and is aged for at least 6 months in bottle.
A full-bodied, intense, soft and elegant wine, a perfect synthesis of tradition and innovation. The nose is dominated by hints of red fruit jam, in the mouth it is warm, soft, savory and very persistent. Aging forecast 8-10 years
