Libertà

I.G.T. Toscana

denominazione
I.G.T. Toscana
Varietà
Merlot 50%, Cabernet Franc 35%, Syrah 15%.
Caratteristiche
Libertà is made with grapes from the Collazzi estate.
The wine's goal is to achieve an delicious balance between the Merlot's soft tannins, Syrah’s richness in spices and the elegant fragrance of Sangiovese. The wine owes its name to a donation that the City of Florence made to eight local families, among which the former owners of Collazzi, who had valiantly fought for the city's freedom.
Colore
Very deep, it tells of the excellent quality of the grapes.
Profumi
Balsamic, typical of the main grape variety in the blend.
Gusto
Round, pervasive, with sweet tannins, perfectly balanced. Complex, long, yet not overpowering
From appetizers like cold cuts, to steamy pasta dishes in meat sauces. Not to be forgotten, the pairing with seasoned cheeses, stewed meats and dry chocolate biscuits.
