De Ferrari

I.G.T. Toscana

De Ferrari

Typical geographic indication: Toscana

Soil
The Boscarelli Farms vineyards in Cervognano are planted on an alluvial-origin calcareous soil that contains a good percentage of sand, silt and clay.

The average density is 6500 vines per hectare

Grapes
Produced with selected grapes harvested from our young vineyards, it is a wine that seeks to
enhance the fresh and floral scents of the Sangiovese variety with the fruity notes of Merlot. Grapes
that contribute to the wineā€™s composition are: 90% Sangiovese Prugnolo Gentile, 5% Canaiolo and
5% Merlot.

Vinification
The grapes are picked manually and after de-stemming and soft pressing, are fermented in steel vats using indigenous yeast. The fermentation process lasts about a week at controlled temperatures from 28 to 30 degrees. A short manual re-passing of the must and pomace is completed in the initial phase.

Aging
The wine matures for several months in vitrified cement vats where malolactic fermentation occurs. Before bottling the wine is lightly filtered and shipped the summer after harvest.

Optimal maturity
Our De Ferrari wine is made to enhance the freshness of its floral and fruity notes. As fragrance is a particular characteristic of this vintage, recommend drinking it within the first 4 to 5 years of its life.
