Obtained from a particular selection of Tuscan Sangiovese with a small percentage of Merlot, it expresses its excellent character of great strength after skillful refinements. The name comes from the founding friar of the Carthusian Order, who passed through these countryside areas on his journey to Rome, staying in Siena.
Winemaking: The grapes are fermented in stainless steel tanks at a temperature below 27°C for a period of 15/20 days, followed by malolactic fermentation in cement tanks.
Aging: 12 months in French tonneaux and barriques, followed by bottle aging for at least 6 months.
Organoleptic characteristics: Upon visual examination, it appears clear, garnet red, and with good consistency. It has an intense and complex aroma: ripe fruit and small black berries, undergrowth, and a hint of spices. On the palate, it is soft, with the various components in perfect balance with the fine and elegant tannin structure, offering an exceptional persistence in the finish.
An excellent wine for contemplation, it pairs well with aged cheeses, but also with a typical sweet treat from Siena, panpepato.
