Sancta Catharina combines the drinkability of the typical Sangiovese of Montepulciano with the fruitiness of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. We have created this wine with the aim of bringing out the potential of the Montepulciano area: soil that is perfect for Sangiovese, and at the same time capable of enhancing other varieties.
Complex, fragrant wine, rich in aromas of black fruit, such as blueberry and blackberry jam. It is balsamic and floral (violet), well balanced with some spicy hints of tobacco, vanilla and black pepper. Full-bodied, with velvety, compact tannins and long ageing potential. It goes well with stewed game and mature cheeses.
Sangiovese and other varieties such as Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot
Mainly the vineyard “La Ciarliana”: located at 250-300 m above sea level, with a medium-textured clay soil that gives our wine an intense colour, a full body and a strong capacity for ageing.
