Embracing Tuscan Elegance: Smeriglio Sangiovese by Baracchi

In the esteemed vineyards of Cortona, under the Tuscan sun, Baracchi Winery has crafted a masterpiece that encapsulates the essence of the region's winemaking heritage. The Smeriglio Sangiovese, a DOC Cortona Sangiovese from the 2021 vintage, stands as a beacon of elegance and complexity. This 100% Sangiovese wine, aged in barriques for 12 months, is a testament to the meticulous care and passion that Baracchi Winery pours into every bottle.

The Smeriglio Sangiovese is not just a wine; it's an experience. With fermentation and maceration with skins for 25 days in stainless steel vats, followed by aging in French oak barrels, this wine is a harmonious blend of traditional techniques and modern innovation. The choice of second-passage barrels ensures that the Sangiovese's character shines through, enhanced by the subtle influence of oak.

Upon pouring, the Smeriglio Sangiovese greets the eye with an intense ruby red color, promising a journey of discovery. The nose is met with typical aromas of violet and cherry, intertwined with spicy notes of juniper berries and balsamic hints. On the palate, the wine reveals a significant body that is fresh yet firm, with tannins that pave the way to a very long aftertaste of red fruit and a floral finish. It's a wine that embodies the balance between power and elegance, making it a perfect companion for a wide range of culinary delights.
