Ilex I.G.T. Toscana 2016
Ilex is an IGT produced in barrique, a good solid table wine, recommended for wine bars. A delicate, elegant, seductive wine, with a rounded flavour and sweet notes.
Intense ruby red hues come with decisive tannins and a mineral hint that makes the finish long and vibrant. Nose notes of black berry fruit jam combine with moist slightly peaty hints. The blackberry notes follow through to the palate.
Aged in second-fill French oak barriques for twelve months and in the bottle for three months. 100% Sangiovese.
Ageing process: in French oak barrels (50% the first process and 50% the second process) for two years; then in the bottle for an additional two years
Sensory analysis: The wine is a deep ruby red color with garnet hues. The olfactory notes are mainly of red berry fruit jam, with hints of plum and sweet tobacco sensations; it is full, warm and creamy, with ripe tannins and dark chocolate; the taste is complex yet balanced and consistant with these aromas
Total Alcoholic strength by volume: 14%
