“12 Uve” Rosso Maremma Toscana IGT, Paradiso di Frassina (2017) - Toscana
Red wine unique in 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 bottles. 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, fruit, vegetables, and spices. Earthy aromas of scorched earth, black-skinned berry and a whiff of black olive lead the nose. A juicy savoury palate offers Marasca cherry, liquorice and vanilla alongside fine-grained tannins.
