Prunicce

IGT Tuscany Red Wine

The Val di Cecina coast is worldwide renowned for its Cabernet wines, nevertheless its hillsides has hosted the “Sangioveto” as the prime vine in the territory for millennia.

The Prunicce combines the delicate and fruity aromas of the Sangiovese Piccolo with the spicier and stronger ones of the Cabernet Sauvignon and Franc.

The result is a blend between tradition and innovation, freshness and power, whereas red fruit and ripe plum scents prevail, and the ageing process can last for some years.
