"The Terre a Mano Carmignano is a traditional blend for the region, having predominately Sangiovese as the focal point, some native Canaiolo, and a bit of Cabernet Sauvignon (which has been part of the Carmignano regulations since it began 300 years ago) which is still sometimes called Uva Francesca. All of the fermenting grapes, and even vineyard sites and plots, are kept separate from each other until the very end when the time comes for blending and bottling. Natural alcoholic fermentation takes place in concrete vats. Once complete, the juice is moved to used French Tonneau for spontaneous malo-lactic fermentation to begin, and is then racked when finished. The wine rests for close to two years in barrel before it is blended back into concrete (which is the first time the juice sees any sulfur addition), and mellows for another 2-3 months before bottling. And the finished wine is full of vibrant acidity, fresh fruit, balanced oak influence, and fantastic tannins. It is the original ‘Super Tuscan.’" -Supplier notes
