An elegant wine with solid structure, a deep ruby colour and complex aroma that recalls marasca cherries and blackberries, followed by notes of violet, light mentholated hints and a spicy finish.
A wine of great concentration, fruity and slightly balsamic, it has soft and velvety tannins with a long, lingering finish.
Grape varietals: Sangiovese and Canaiolo from the vineyard of Monticchio; double spurred cordon pruning system, harvested in October.
Vinification: fermented in stainless steel with skin maceration for 15-20 days, barrique aged for one year and bottle aged for several years. On average the wine is suited for aging 30-35 years.
Food pairings: excellent with roasted and braised red meats and aged cheeses, it also marries particularly well with the most refined international cuisines.
Serve at 16-18 °C (61-64°F) in a large stem glass.
A DOCG wine since 1990 with retroactive recognition back to the 1983 vintage, it is a great classic that in the past few years has acquired renewed vigour that elegantly speaks using its traditional language of balance and harmony. Rubesco is a proprietary trademark deriving from the Latin verb rubescere, to blush: hence, a joyous meaning.
