Greppicante Technical Sheets
Greppicante allows anyone to have a taste of what our unique blend of terroir and technique can create. Currants, blackberries and hints of rosemary and flowers follow through to a full body with decadent fruit, rich meat and leather. Long and flavorful, this wine is a concentrated brilliant red with elegant and complex aromas. Although full-bodied with velvety tannins, it is not as bold as its Superiore relative and can be enjoyed immediately after opening. The best grapes that have not gone into Greppicaia, are used to make our Greppicante which typically has a higher proportion of Merlot which gives the wine a softer component. It is aged for 12 months in 2 and 3 year old French oak barrels followed by 6 months in bottles. Our Greppicante 2016 gained 93 pts from James Suckling and we aim to reach higher all the time.
