Silver Award Winner Decanter World Wine Awards 2015

Silver Award Winner Concours Mondial de Bruxelles 2016

This deep ruby red wine made from 100% Merlot grapes has a generous, complex nose with lingering fragrances of pungent spice and ripe red berry. It is well balanced on the palate, firm-structured yet smooth and opulent, with very fine-grained, fragrant tannins: This is a wine of great breed with impressive cellaring potential.

Matured at least 14 months in French Allier oak barriques, where malolactic fermentation takes place, followed by further bottle-ageing.

Ideal with all meat dishes: roasts, stews, and any preparation in juices or sauce; an outstanding partner with small and large wild game.

Year: 2010  Alcohol: 13.5%

Our producer – Tenuta San Vito

In 1985, the Tenuta San Vito was the first wine-growing estate in Tuscany to switch to organic production, It is remarkably large, measuring 150 hectares, approximately 30 hectares of which contain vines and 20 hectares olive trees. The rest is forest, which surrounds the entire estate. Situated in the hills of the Chianti Colli Fiorentini, 18 kilometres from Florence, it is secluded and far away from noise and traffic.

Since 1985, all of San Vito's products have been certified by the A.I.A.B. (Associazione Italiana Agricoltura Biologica), and the winery is a member of I.F.O.A.M. (International Federation of Organic Agricoltural Movement). The current certifying authority is I.C.E.A. (Istituto per la Certificazione Etica ed Ambientale), which ensures observance of the E.U. 2092/91 regulation and international norms.

San Vito's observance of organic farming means that it uses only substances derived from organic minerals, both for fertilisers and anti-pest treatments. This allows the soil to maintain its productive capacity without leaving any chemical residues in the soil or in the wines.
