Progetto Mocenni with the strength of Lots n° 89 e n° 91, has given life to two beautiful solo voices which, with different timbres, characteristics and tones describe the same area, made by nature ideal for highest quality.
Denomination: IGT Toscana Cabernet Sauvignon
Grape Varietal: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon
Soil: Alberese and Galestro stones; sand 33%, clay 33%, silt 33%
Vinification and aging: Fermentation in stainless steel vats; maceration for circa 20 days
at a controlled temperature of 28-30°C. Shortly after alcoholic fermentation the wine is
transferred into barriques of French oak where malolactic fermentation takes place and where
it is subsequently aged for 24 months. Once bottled, the wine remains stored in the cellar for
refinement prior to release.
Tasting notes: Intense ruby red colour. Incredible intense bouquet with notes of coffee,
hazelnut, incense, liquorice. An impressive tannin structure, suitable for long aging. It has
a long, persistent lingering. A good acidic component that is well balanced with the tannins.
This wine, in its own unique and unmistakable way expresses the characteristic salinity and
minerality of the terrain. An excellent expression of Cabernet Sauvignon in Chianti Classico
area of production.
Serving suggestions: Traditional accompaniments are red meat (both fresh and salted), game
and mature cheeses.
Serving temperature: 18°C. Open and decant at least 1 hour ahead of time. Store at a
constant temperature of 17C° away from light.
ap legend: The name derives from the number the State has assigned to the land on which the vineyards producing this wine grow.
egend: Nicolò and Alessandra talked extensively and with excitement about whether Cabernet and Sangiovese would produce wines which were more linked to the territory than to their intrinsic characteristics. The discussion led to planting two different vineyards. The one who maintained predominance of territory was right, but for the sake of family peace we will not mention the name.
