Ormanni, 'Julius', Toscana IGTRegular price €37.00
Master taster Giulio Gambelli and Paolo Brini Batacchi, owner of Tenuta Ormanni and an expert on Merlot, Sangiovese and Syrah, have created a Super Tuscan that further enriches the estate's already formidable array of premium wines.
Step by step, Maestro Gambelli has personally assessed the soils and identified the zones where grapes should be collected and selected, overseeing vinification and the choice of barrels. His dedication and commitment have been rewarded by the creation of Julius, a name that Brini Batacchi family adopted in honour of its expert taster.
The judicious combination of hand-picked Sangiovese, Merlot and Syrah combined with eight to ten months' aging in barriques yields an exceptional vino da tavola.
The thirteenth century Ormanni estate is right in the heart of Chianti, located between Poggibonsi and Castellina, and evidence of the incredible heritage of this Tuscan property is provided by a mention of the Ormanni family in Dante's Divine Comedy.
