Campo del Pari

IGT Tuscany Red Wine

“Your Merlot certainly deserves to be presented in purity, but why do not add to it the complexity of your Cabernet or the freshness of your Sangiovese Piccolo?”, an old French friend asked us.

The question deserved an answer, and Graziana Grassini has satisfactorily replied producing a wine which comes out from a “clos” known as “Campo del Pari” for being a flat stretch on a hilltop.

Powerful and elegant, this wine combines Merlot’s spiced and balsamic aromas with a rich complexity which stands out with a smooth and prolonged finale.

Campo del Pari is a wine which fully rewards the care and the selection of the grape from the vineyard required, the carefully controlled duration and temperature of the fermentation, the complex refinement process which combines the use of new and second-passage barriques and the stabilization due to a short passage in cement.
