Cortaccio Toscana IGT 1999 - Villa Cafaggio
Cortaccio Villa Cafaggio is a wine of extraordinary stature and has a garnet red color, an intense aroma with hints of blackcurrant and a perfectly integrated toasting note. On the palate it is of remarkable concentration but at the same time perfectly harmonious, rightly tannic and very persistent. The grapes are de-stemmed and delicately pressed in order not to damage the skin rich in coloring matter. Selected yeasts are added to the must to activate fermentation while the wine remains in contact with the skins for 3 weeks. After the primary fermentation, the Cortaccio is transferred to a room dedicated exclusively to malolactic fermentation, which takes place entirely in French oak barriques and which allows to produce a wine of great structure and balance.
