Rosso Gauggiole Cru is a young, refreshing 100% sangiovese. It is the cherry-pick of grapes from different parcels of one single vineyard and it is the highest expression of the area’s potential, emphasizing the finesse that Castiglion del Bosco strives to bestow upon its finest wines. The name derives from the location of the vineyards, historically titled after the farmstead of the same name. Soils in this are fresh and not overly clayey, and the northeast exposure mitigates the power and heat that are typical of vineyards. The wine spends 6 months in stainless steel tanks, 18 months in concrete tanks and 4 months in bottle.
The 2018 vintage was characterized by abundant rainfall during the spring, above the average. Rosso Gauggiole 2018 expresses the characteristics due to this particular climate, underlining the olfactory matrix that the selection of vineyards in the Gauggiole area gives us. It has clear and fragrant aromas with citrus note and hints of violet. In the mouth it is characterized by a vibrant acidity that enhances the body and its smooth round tannins.
