“12 Uve” Rosso Maremma Toscana IGT, Paradiso di Frassina (2015) - Toscana
A red wine absolutely unique of its type.
Born from the careful selection of 12 different grape varietals; 6 native Tuscan grapes and 6 from France, all grown in the same vineyard near Cinigiano, on a hill shadowed by Mount Amiata and not far from the sea. The 12 UVE wine is also called "Crazy Blend" and expresses its musicality in the biodiversity of its blend (imitating the musical scale with its 12 semitones).
It ages for two and a half years in Allier oak barrels and refines for one year in bottle. A wine with extraordinary sensory powers that are almost impossible to define; the sensory elements of this wine show continuous change, suggesting scents of flowers, of fruit, of vegetables, and of spices. Earthy aromas of scorched earth, black-skinned berry and a whiff of black olive lead the nose. A savoury juicy palate offers Marasca cherry, liquorice and vanilla alongside fine-grained tannins.
Food Pairing: Steak, Red Meat.
