WE CHOSE IT BECAUSE
It can be drunk immediately but also after a few years of resting in the cellar
Two international grape varieties, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, that transplanted to the Altotiberini hills take on unique connotations, aided in part by the hand of Marco Merli. Only natural and environmentally friendly methods, this is Marco Merli’s prerogative, to create authentic wines that mirror the territory in which they grow.
The harvest of the two grape varieties used in “Brucisco rosso” takes place at two separate times: in the first days of September for the Merlot, while for the Cabernet one must wait until early October. In each case, harvesting is entirely by hand. Fermentation takes place in three different containers, first in PVC tanks, then in cement and steel tanks. Aging lasts a full 24 months and involves 10 hl oak barrels. The final rest period in the bottle of at least 6 months completes the picture before release.
The aromas are classic and characteristic of the two international grape varieties used: cigar box, leather and graphite.
On tasting it reveals its important body, suitable for supporting boards of aged cheeses, grilled or stewed red meats and pasta dishes with flavorful meat sauces.
“Brucisco rosso” is a wine with great evolutionary potential: to realize this, all you have to do is store a few bottles in the cellar and taste them a year apart!
INGREDIENTS AND BENEFITS
A glass of wine a day keeps the doctor away!
It is clear that wine is not harmful to our bodies, as a substance given to us by nature in the form of fruit from which man over the centuries has managed to obtain this heavenly beverage. We can guarantee that our winemakers work by following ancient methods, supported by the aid of contemporary technologies: this is why we feel confident in affirming that Italian wine, the real one, is a panacea for body and mind.
The presence of polyphenols in wine (to a lesser extent in white wines and in large quantities in reds, especially when aged) provides constant protection against cellular oxidation, the main culprit of aging and cellular deterioration.
Perhaps even more obvious and important, however, are the psychological benefits that a good glass of Italian wine can give you: the lightheartedness it gives to an evening with friends, the romance it helps to create in a couple’s dinner, the passion it is able to unleash in anyone lucky enough to taste its essences.
We receive your order, prepare it and ship it in 24/36 hours.
We are aware that excellent products need excellent packaging and at the same time we cannot risk damaging in any way the precious Italian culinary jewels: for this reason our warehouse is equipped with temperature and lighting ideal for food preservation and the most delicate ones (cheeses, cold cuts and craft beers) are stored inside cold rooms. During shipping, on the other hand, each product is protected with the packaging most appropriate to its characteristics.
Cheeses and cured meats, which despite being aged require special care, travel accompanied by a special slow-release gel ice inside isothermal bags: in this way freshness is preserved until the goods arrive at your home.
For our craft beers, which are unpasteurized and therefore more sensitive to high temperatures than normal, we use special isothermal bubble wrap, which can ensure that the accumulated cold is maintained for the shipping time while protecting the bottles from shocks.
To secure the precious bottles of Italian wine, we have equipped ourselves with special inflatable bags, designed solely for the purpose of immobilizing and protecting this product inside the box.
For jars containing a thousand Italian goodnesses, we use special protective bubble wrap liners.
