The Ephemerides are the charts on which, since ancient times, man has tried to fix the motion of celestial bodies, relying on the stars to orient himself in his innate anxiety to overcome borders. This 100% Sangiovese Riserva goes beyond the flavour and freshness typical of Morellino. It offers the senses a surprising structure and roundness, the result of long ageing in French oak barrels, the unique environmental conditions of the area, the careful selection of the fruits during the harvest and an even more uncompromising selection of the wines made from the best grapes. Effemeridi, a complex and perspective wine, represents for us the perfect outcome of uncompromising research, aimed at enhancing the terroir and letting it express itself in the most elegant and individual way.
Morellino di Scansano DOCG Riserva
GRAPES 100% Sangiovese locally called Morellino
VINIFICATION Malolactic fermentation takes place in concrete vats.
AGEING It is aged 24 months in French oak tonneaux. Half of them are new, and the other half are first and second passage French oak tonneaux. It is then kept in concrete tanks till bottling.
A look beyond established boundaries, with roots immersed in a land that
has had a continuous dialogue with the sky for thousands of years.
Bright ruby red with purple reflections. An extremely complex bouquet, rich in nuances, including hints of small ripe red fruits (morello cherry), elegant balsamic notes (thyme) and sweet spices such as vanilla, caramel and bitter cocoa. The persistent, deep, silky tannins are well balanced by volume and freshness and give this wine a harmonious and long-lasting taste, suggesting it will age brilliantly in the bottle.
Game, roasted red meats and aged cheeses. Also perfect as a wine for meditating.
