Olmatello Sangiovese Superiore Riserva Romagna DOC
Olmatello is a 100% Sangiovese from the Zone of Olmatello, the stupendous and intriguing forest of monumental pines that overlooks, like some immense natural balcony, all of the surrounding hills and rises majestically over the Valle di San Cristoforo, historically-known for its sulphur-mineral springs and thermal baths. This south-facing vineyard, on the highest elevation, consistently yields the best-ripened grapes. After fermentation, the wine matures 24 months in once- and twice-used 225l oak barrels, followed by assembly of the final blend and a further 6 months’ ageing in the bottle.
Intense ruby red, with subtle garnet highlights. Complex and refined bouquet, with fragrant notes of mixed fruit and nuts, along with pungent impressions of pipe tobacco, black liquorice, tanned leather, and roasted espresso bean. On the palate it is elegant, deep, and warm, with pronounced tannins and a refined, but rich and seductive, finish. We suggest serving it at 16-18 °C.
