Rosso Toscano IGT "Baccano"
Baccano makes you want a second glass straight away. Delicious right to the last drop, “joyful” with an inviting bouquet; its label, featuring a solar lunar eclipse, evokes the possibility to enjoy this wine both by day and by night. Baccano is made mostly with Sangiovese, with the addition of a refined blend of Syrah and Merlot, and sensory examination reveals the scent of the cherries that grow around the Certosa. It has a full, concentrated body with evident, almost crunchy tannins that harmonise beautifully with a well - balanced alcoholic component. The finish develops considerably on the palate. It can be served chilled, at 11-12°C. The perfect wine for making a noise or, in Italian, “fare baccano”.
