La Regola Toscana Rosso IGT, 2017 – Podere La Regola
Just 5 km from the sea, in Riparbella, among vineyards, olive trees and cypresses, is the Podere La Regola winery.
The numerous wine amphorae found near the cellar is evidence of an ancient Etruscan settlement (VII BC), and confirms the great vocation of the area for the cultivation of vines.
The company currently owns 20 hectares of vineyards, partly in the plain (50 meters above sea level) and partly in the hills (100-200 above sea level), cultivated entirely with the organic farming method. The cultivation of native vines such as Sangiovese and Vermentino is flanked by typically French vines, among which Cabernet Franc stands out, which with a small percentage of Merlot and Petit Verdot grapes constitutes the blend of the most important and representative wine of the company, Cru “La Regola”.
The grapes are harvested by hand and rigorously selected grape by grape, and after a medium maceration on the skins, an alcoholic fermentation takes place in natural cement vats at a controlled temperature. After malolactic fermentation, the wine remains for at least 18 months in new medium-toasted French oak barrels manufactured in Burgundy and at least a further 12 months in the bottle.
At the sight, a ruby red color instantly stands out, and to the nose it expresses a complex bouquet rich in scents: from red berries such as blackberry and blueberry, to spices with black pepper and cloves, to then reveal a note of nutmeg, chocolate and coffee in the finish.
On the palate it is structured but round, with well integrated and elegant tannins. Long persistence with licorice aftertaste.
Numerous international awards confirm the great expression of the company Cru including: 94/100 by Falstaff, 94/100 by Robert Parker and 95/100 by James Suckling.
