Tenuta Di Riseccoli Saeculum Super Tuscan 2017


Producer: Tenuta Di Riseccoli
Country: Italy
Region: Tuscany
Grape: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Sangiovese

The wine is a “Super-Tuscan” in every sense of the term, being a blend of Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. It’s produced from our best fruit and only in the best vintages. Fermentation of the Sangiovese takes place in temperature-controlled cement vats with specially selected yeasts. After malolactic fermentation, the Sangiovese is ready for aging. The Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot are fermented separately in stainless steel tanks. The wine spends 12 months in French barriques of first and second remplissage, after which the wine from the best barriques are blended, lightly fined and bottled.
