Podere San Cristoforo Amaranto

8,295 KShs

Amaranto has a lively ruby red color, with intense aromas of violets, currants, raspberries and spicy nuances. On the palate, Amaranto is: fresh and balanced with a fine and elegant tannic texture and an excellent persistence. Amaranto undergoes, a short maceration to express: a very pure style of Sangiovese: gentle and elegant but also rich and intense

Vintage Notes: after a challenging rainy spring, conditions improved significantly during the summer, culminating in almost perfect weather in: September, during the harvest. Our 2018 reds aren’t extraordinarily powerful as some as the previous vintages (2015 and 2016) but they display deep colours together with very specific aromatics. On the palate they are incredibly fresh, vibrant, and are endowed with refined and silky tannins. The whites, based on Vermentino, show moderate acidities and intense fragrance: peach, apricot with hints of: white flower and spearmint.

Suggested Food Pairings: this is a dry wine, with: great levels of acidity, not a wine to be taken lightly as it needs food – to really come into its own but once you introduce food all the fruit comes to life..
