Product Description

A juicy, smooth-but-serious blend of Sangiovese, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon Oz Clarck Pocket Wine Book 2014 A one-size-fits-all wine for our favorite Italian foods. A terrific super Tuscan blend. 90/100 Monica Larner Wine Enthusiast May 1, 2012 This supple, spicy beauty is one of the best Italian wines Ive had in ages. Jonathan Ray The Daily Telegraph July 28, 2008 Varieties: Sangiovese (50%); Merlot (25%); Cabernet Sauvignon (25%). Viticulture: Biodynamic (since first planting, 1997). Average production: 130,000 bottles (10,833 cases). Appellation: Maremma Toscana IGT First vintage: 2005 Average yield: Sangiovese 55 hl/ha; Merlot 45 hl/ha; Cabernet Sauvignon: 40 hl/ha. Average alcohol content: 13.5% vol. Ideal serving temperature: 1418° C (5764° F). The grapes are picked by hand and harvested based on their phenolic maturation, using small crates. In the cellar, they undergo fermentation in stainless steel vats. After malolactic fermentation, the wine undergoes élevage mostly in cement vats until it is blended to be bottled. A small selection of the wine is matured in barriques for ten months and then added to the final blend. Mongrana is the quintessential expression of the colors, sights and sounds of the Maremma region: fruity and intense, fresh and embracing, the wine takes its name and its character from that of the noble family of knights depicted by the Italian Renaissance poet Ludovico Ariosto in his epic masterpiece Orlando Furioso (Mad Orlando). Mongrana is bottled and packaged exclusively in the following formats: 0.750 liter [12 or 6 bottle cardboard box]; 1.5 liter [1 bottle cardboard box]. Mongrana is produced without using any animal products or byproducts. It is therefore suitable for vegans and vegetarians.
