Ritasso Bottle Shot

TECH DETAILS

VARIETAL: 100% Sangiovese 

PRODUCTION: 5,000 750 ml bottles

VINIFICATION:

The grapes are deposited on a conveyor belt that moves them using gravity (to avoid damaging the skins) to the de-stemming machine where the leaves and stems are removed. From there, the fruit moves via conveyor belt to a filtering machine that gently breaks the skins to release juice as the grapes drop to fill a conical-shaped stainless steel tank. 

 

Temperature-controlled fermentation begins and juice is pumped over the grapes every 6 hours. After 2 weeks the grapes are gently pressed and the wine is aged 12 months in used French oak barrels and then an additional 12 months in the bottle before release.

 

COLOR: Rich, dark color

 

NOSE: Sumptuous aromas of chocolate and black fruits.
 

PALETTE: Full bodied and voluptuous, the textures are plush, acidity is subtle and tannins are balanced. An example of finesse and elegance.
