Occhio di Pernice Vin Santo di Montepulciano DOC, Tasting notes:
It reveals a complex and enveloping bouquet with aromas of prunes and dates, propolis, gingerbread, malaga and tobacco. In the mouth it is sweet and spicy and the olfactory notes return, expanding with those of dried apricots and smoked hazelnut with small nuances of Christmas spices. A wine that surprises with every sip for its concentration and depth. Retro-olfactory persistence is incredibly long. A true Fuori Serie.
Avignonesi, winery in Val di Chiana
The producer, Avignonesi extend in the Montepulciano and Cortona areas (in the Val di Chiana in the province of Arezzo) ensuring a diversified spectrum of soils that allows the production of a Vino Nobile di Montepulciano that authentically expresses the complexity of the terroir, while the Val di Chiana is suitable for the cultivation of other grape varieties such as Merlot, Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon.
Occhio di Pernice a 100% sangiovese wine
This amazing Vin santo is the result of an exceptionally long aging process during which more than half of this precious liquid evaporates. It has been calculated that with the same quantity of grapes used to produce one of their 375 ml bottles, twenty-four 750 ml bottles of wine can be produced. Made from 100% Sangiovese grapes, this is the result of a strict selection of the best grapes, drying for many months on bamboo mats in the appassitoio and then 10 years in oak barrels, in contact with the mother, indigenous yeast more than 100 years old. The wine is perfect as a Meditation wine, but also with dry pastry as Cantucci Toscani or Chocolate.
