WINE INFO
Grape Variaty:
Merlot
Alcoholic Content: 14.5 %
Vintage: 2018
Region: Central Italy, Tuscany
Volume: 0.75 L
Vinification: After the grapes were harvested by hand and carefully selected on sorting tables, the berries were transferred into temperature controlled stainless steel vats where alcoholic fermentation and maceration on the skins took place over a period of about 20 days. Fermentation temperatures were managed based on the ripeness of the grapes: lower temperatures were applied to preserve and enhance aromatic freshness while higher temperatures, up to 30 °C (86 °F), to boost extraction of phenolic compounds and structure. The different batches were divided according to their individual characteristics and then transferred into barriques, one third of which were new. Malolactic fermentation was completed by the end of the year. The finest batches were blended and transferred back into barriques for a further 12-month period of aging, then bottled. Cont’Ugo was left to age in the bottle for an additional 6 months before being released for sale.
