Product Information
Sales Information
It’s bright ruby red in color. Its aroma is a wild notes of ripe mulberry, permeated by notes of roasted coffee beans and dark chocolate, that come from the large barrels. Well-balanced, velvety, with important excellent structure and prolonged concentrated finish with persistent typical Sangiovese tang.

Their Riserva represents the selection of the best Sangiovese grapes from our best vineyard «Galioffo vecchio», aged in traditional tuscan big chestnut wood barrels. The use of chestnut
barrels is our conscious choice to keep the tradition of ageing with chestnut barrels alive.

The Sangiovese was fermented and put to the big oak/chestnut barrels for 18 months of ageing, following a lengthy aging in the bottle for 6 months to obtain the optimal maturation.
The Vineyard
 

Fattoria il muro vineyards extend over 30 ha.

They strive to grow their vines in the most sustainable way possible respecting the surrounding environment, since we believe that only favorable environmental conditions make possible to obtain the best quality of the grape.

The estate is a patchwork quilt of different vineyards of different ages of vines (some are more than 30 years old, some are new), different varieties and different exposures. However, all of them are in perfect conditions. The new vineyards were planted with the best clones and have a density of 5000 plants per HA to encourage the competition of the vines and, thus, to get low yields with higher quality grapes.

Every year two/three hectares are implanted to keep steady the relation between production and labour. In line with the rules of Chianti DOCG’s production, Sangiovese is the most present quality of grape in our vineyards. However, they also have internationally well known species of grape-wine like Cabernet, Merlot, Syrah, Chardonnay as well as traditional ones as Canaiolo, Colorino, Trebbiano, Malvasia Bianca and Malvasia Nera.

Smooth ripe dark cherry and cassis fruits with toasted coffee and dark chocolate. Try it with grilled sirloin steak with mushrooms.
