Toscana Sangiovese IGT "Nicole" 2017 Cosimo Maria Masini
Producer: Cosimo Maria Masini Region: Tuscany Grape Variety: Sangiovese 100% Harvest: The grapes were attentively selected and hand picked on our vineyard with the best exposition, south-east, on the highest altitude of our estate. The training system features cordon spur. Vinification: Nicole is fruit of our grape’s natural fermentation, without any enological additives. The grapes have been fermented in wooden oak casks (so-called Troncoconici) with daily punch down. Aging: Matured in 40hl capacity oak tanks for about 10months, Nicole is being bottled without clarification or filtration. Serving At: 14-18 degrees
Tasting Notes: Of deep ruby color, Nicole is an example of Sangiovese at its best – succulent and powerful, at the same time refined and elegant. Intriguing and complex on the nose, with a fruity component well recognizable also on the palate. The tannins are present but round and well integrated. A characteristic wine of excellent drinkability.
Pairing: Best with typical Tuscan tomatoe based dishes, Pizza and Pasta. Ideal with sausages, typical Tuscan starters, semi-matured cheeses, red meat, offal (especially tripe in tomatoe sauce)
