About This Product :

The Grapes: 65% Merlot and 35% Cabernet Franc

The Appellation: Tuscany, Italy

The Wine: Named “Cingalino” due to the funny animal represented on the label.  A dressed wild boar with a grape in his hand.  It’s a nice label for representing the Tuscan region where wild boars are a part of every day winemaking life- and strife!  The intention is to do a product easy to
drink with the complexity and roundness of French varieties, without loosing the flavour and fresh quality of traditional Tuscan wine. Thanks to the particular attention of the blend, they obtain a wine with a medium dark colour with vibrant flavour and aromas, a pleasant wine
to drink even if young.

The Winemaking: Grape varieties are fermented separately, then blended, and after they have aged for 6 months in Taransaud French oak (1-year used)  of 225 liters.  The barrels contribute to enhance the elegance.

The Paring: We recommend serving the wine with grilled meats, cheese and flavourful pasta dishes- perhaps even roasted boar?

Total Production: 100000 bottles.
