Varietal: 100% Sangiovese
Dardo 2015 is made of 100% Sangiovese grown on selected vineyards across Tuscany. This beautiful vintage allowed us to pick the Sangiovese grapes at the desired ripening point, creating a blend with a great balance between fruitiness and freshness, with a medium food-friendly body.
Our Sangiovese was picked from September 25-28 and, after grapes were crushed and destemmed, fermentation was conducted with brief pump-overs and daily punch downs at an average temperature of 28°C to maintain the red fruit aromas and soft tannins.
No wood barrels were used to age this wine, in order to maintain the varietal aromas. The wine was bottled in a Bordeaux screw cap bottle with a careful use of oxygen during the winemaking process. Attention to detail is of utmost importance and is applied to all the winemaking processes, and the Stelvin closure allowed us to keep sulphite levels very low.
