Tenuta Mara 'Maramia' Rubicone IGT Sangiovese 2018
Grapes: 100% Sangiovese.
Tasting Notes: Intense ruby red colour, limpid with garnet reactions. Bouquet that opens with oral aromas of broom and violet, fruity aromas of raspberry, blackberry and black cherry. Surprising nuances of sandalwood and Mediterranean bush accompanied by aromas of the underwood and spicy notes of cinchona, and ginger too. On the palate it delivers softness, freshness and a discreet but evident velvety tannin making it perfectly balanced. This a magnificent wine with ageing potential.

Harvest: The harvest takes place during the first days of October and is strictly manual, placed into small crates of 12kg each.
