Complex with blackberry notes, plum jam, cherries and licorice,with black olive and tobacco sensations. Powerful body, wide and soft tannin texture thanks to the good ripening in the vineyard and winery. Perfect with bean soups, grilled meat and medium aged cheese.

Blend: 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 25% Sangiovese, 15% Syrah

PRODUCTION AREA

Estate vineyards, in the southern hills of Montalcino. Altitude: from 120 meters above sea level (Syrah) to 230 meters above sea level (Sangiovese). Position: Hillside.

GRAPE VARIETIES

Cabernet Sauvignon (30%), Merlot (30%), Sangiovese (25%), Syrah (15%).

METHOD OF PRODUCTION

 

The four varieties are vinified separately in Horizon hybrid stainless steel & wood tanks, with a cold maceration (14°C) prior to fermentation for 2 days. Maceration at 22°C follows until the 2 last days of alcoholic fermentation when the temperature is brought up to 27°C.

After the alcoholic fermentation, the wines are separately racked into barriques where malolactic fermentation takes place and where they age approximately for 6 months.

The cuvée is made and then aged an additional 6 months, completed by 6 months of bottle aging.

 

THE WINEMAKER COMMENT

 

Our newest SuperTuscan cuvée, Cum Laude - Latin for “with honours” - combines for the first time the four red varietals which have been selected during the 25 years of research as the best for our vineyards in Montalcino. A charming red wine suitable for complex food pairings but also in more informal occasions.
