Colli di Luni Rosso DOC Niccolò V

    • Description :

      Colli di Luni is one of the few DOC appellations that straddles over two regions: the easternmost part Liguria (La Spezia) and neighboring coastal Tuscany (Massa Carrara). This is a gorgeous, elegant wine made in honor of Niccolò V, the Pope that was born in the town of Sarzana, near the winery. Sangiovese is blended with Merlot and Pollera Nera, a red grape that is grown only in this region of Italy and which gives the wine a great local character.
      Vinification: Maceration on the skins for 12 days followed by fermentation in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperatures.
      Aging: The wine rests for 12 months in barriques followed by 6 months in bottle before release.
