6 Bottles Case of Bartolomeo 2015
The Sangiovese, from the Latin "Sangius jovis", is the predominant grape-variety in this wine and the calm, elegant characteristics of the Cabernet give this wine ample olfactory complexity and greater strength to both body and flavour. The colour si deep ruby red, tending to garnet with age. With a dry, full and smooth flavor, rich with personality and well structured, complete and elegant, with an evidently aristocratic character; hints of wood can be perceived amidst the typical herbaceous notes.
The prime quality and structure of this wine demand excellent first courses and risottos with sauces made from wild boar and hare, tasty red meat dishes such as roast ame, vegetable soufflé and spicy mature cheeses.
2015 vintage, a Fantastic Vintage
Our wines produced with the 2015 harvest are excellent vintage wines with a fantastic harvest favored by the climate, described by a spring that alternated plenty of sunny and breezy days. An element, this, that has allowed an acceleration of the growth of the bunch between June and July.
The strong heat recorded in the months of July and August has stopped the development of the plants but the abundant rains of late August have brought back the perfect balance, thanks also to the temperature range of the last few days. With the excellent quality, however, we will be faced with a lower quantity of wine than in 2014 and therefore, the availability of these wines is more contained than in the previous year.
