Experimentum Rosso

Toscana IGT Rosso

Experimenting is the key to innovation. Experimentum is the Villa Trasqua line dedicated to the pure vinification of native Tuscan and international grape varieties that have now perfectly adapted to the Castellina in Chianti terroir. A challenge in the vineyard and in the cellar to enhance monovarietal labels, vinified only and exclusively in the best vintages. Experimentum Rosso is 100% Sangiovese: a limited edition wine with great structure and nobility, refined and elegant ripe tannins.

The bottle is made at double cooking at 560°, decorated with manual screen printing with very fine sand and 980/1000 silver and sealed with shellac.

Tasting notes
Lively ruby red with garnet hues. The aromas are fruity with notes of cherry jam, dried plum and toasted carob with hints of coffee, milk chocolate, toffee. Opening into the glass it expresses spicy aromas of cinnamon, star anise and black pepper with pleasant puffs of cinchona, blond tobacco and leather. The olfactory amplitude anticipates the great elegance and nobility of taste. It is a warm wine with a refined structure with paradigmatic tannins for their integration and therefore a rare workmanship. The acidity supports and participates in the dynamics of the wine making the sip exhilarating and highly drinkable. The aftertaste is very long in persistence with toasted aromas and a pleasant dehydrated orange and saline minerality.
