Description

 

Folonari has been a synonym for fine Italian wine since 1825. the finest grapes are selected in order to generate perfumes and flavours that only the most representative wines of the Italian tradition are capable of offering. Distributed all over the world, Folonari fully exploits the riches of its past and harmonizes it with the demands of a new market while remaining attentive to quality and novelty.

The grapes: sangiovese grosso, canaiolo nero, trebbiano toscano, malvasia del chianti and merlot.

The vineyard: selected vineyards on the hills of Chianti between Siena and Florence at an altitude of 350-400 metres in well exposed soils of a highly varied nature. The production of the vines, trained using the Guyot and spurred cordon system, is limited to 9 tonnes per hectare with a 70% yield in wine.

Vinification: the grapes, harvested in October, are vinified on their skins with around ten days' maceration, and with frequent pumping over. The new wine is subjected to a traditional oenological practice that involves adding must from selected grapes raisined on grills during the winter in order to provoke a slow fermentative resumption that makes the flavour smoother and the perfume more fragrant. Bottling takes place after an adequate period of ageing in steel vats.

Analytical data: alcohol 13%; total acidity 5.25g/l; pH 3.35; sugars 2.00g/l; extract 29.30 g/l.

Ideal conservation: 3 years in bottles on their sides in a cool dark environment.

Food pairings: charcuterie, tasty starters (pasta with meat sauces), white meats and fresh cacio pecorino cheese.

Serving temperature: 16°C



Tasting Note: Brilliant ruby colour. Fragrant winey perfume with attractive hints of raspberry, wild strawberries, violets and ripe grapes. Dry smooth but vivacious flavour, engagingly fruity, with a pleasant appropriately lingering aftertaste of morello cherries.
