 We are so excited to offer another vintage of the Violetta bottling from Ceppaiano. It's their flagship wine and one of our favorite all around Supertuscans. Wines from the western edge of the Chianti zone tend to highlight a floral levity and the Violetta always demonstrates this in volumes. The expression in this vintage is redolent of spicy herbs, desert rose, and dried violet (go figure), as well as plump cherry, and aromatic wood. Lush and with lively acidity on the palate, this is a lovely centerpiece wine for any time of year.

"Aromas of blue flowers, black-skinned berries, baking spice and Mediterranean herb take shape in the glass...the approachable palate doles out black cherry, crushed plum, cinnamon and clove while dried mint provides backup. Silky tannins and fresh acidity balance the juicy flavors."

Vineyard Notes
The Ceppaiano vineyard is located on the edges of Arno River, on sandy soils rich in minerals and fossils of marine origin, in one of the most vocated areas of Pisan hills at about 25km from Tyrrhenian Sea. The vines have been planted, taking advantage of the long experience matured by Castellani oenological team on the soils in this area. The experiments conducted in cooperation with the Oenology department of University of Pisa have allowed the determination the best clones and rootstocks to be planted, with the aim of producing modern wines, rich of territorial tepidity at the same time. The use of integrated organic cultivation techniques and the presence of the vilification cellar inside the vineyard allow the preservation of the pureness of the fruit during cultivation, harvest and transformation.
 
Winemaking Notes
Hand-picked grapes are immediately fermented in the modern cellars of Ceppaiano. The aging takes place for 12 months in French oak barrels.
 
Tasting Notes
The wine has a dark and intense ruby red color, with a complex nose containing multiple layers of primary fruity aromas, as well as wild roses, cherries, mint, cassis and licorice. There are secondary aromas of resin, oak, leather and toasted sweet coffee. An intriguing taste mixes sweet flavours of white chocolate, vanilla and cedar on a buttery bed of oak, verticalized by a gentle acidity. Long finish. Wonderful Sangiovese-Cabernet blend, Brunello style. It is an ideal wine to accompany pasta dishes and spicy Mediterranean dishes. Serve at room temperature.
