This is a new 6 hectare estate, owned by San Felice, and situated near Le Sondraie - just a couple of kilometres from the coast and due west of Siena. International varieties dominate the region and San Fiorenzo is no exception, with 4 hectares of Merlot and 2ha of Cabernet Sauvignon. Vines are just several years old, and planted in the sand-silt soils typical of the region.

The Bolgheri DOC (established in 1994) runs parallel to the Tuscan coast, bordering on the Ligurian Sea. The proximity to the coast brings much light into the vineyards - and the moderate temperatures, with cool winds from the sea, ensure a slow and regular ripening period for the grapes - maintanining fresh acidity and aromas.

Vineyards

The Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot vines are cultivated in sandy-silt soils typical of the Bolgheri region.

Vinification

The grapes are carefully selected and undergo 18 days fermentation and maceration in stainless steel followed by 12 months maturation in French oak, and a further 3 months in bottle.

Tasting Notes

Aromas of ripe black fruits and plum compote with lifted minty notes. The palate is rich and structured with layers of bramble and black cherry fruit balanced by savoury, cedar and capsicum notes, firm tannins and a twist of sour cherry acidity on the finish.

Drink with ravioli and meat ragu, braised duck breast or grilled lamb chops.
