The owner’s reserve. A wine strongly wanted by Giovanni Folonari to order to represent his idea of Gran Selezione.
Only Sangiovese grapes from Tenuta di Nozzole and the return to tradition through the use of large seasoned
woodenbarrels, a typical Tuscan aging method. Numbered bottles and a limited production.
Vintage: After a mild autumn and winter not particularly rainy, spring began with good weather and
then gave way to cooler and occasionally rainy days in the months of May and June. The summer until
the end of August was generally hot and dry, conditions that allowed for an excellent balance of grape
production. The months of September and October allowed for a regular harvest thanks to a good
alternation of sun and rain.
Tasting: the 2016 vintage is characterised by a ruby red colour with purple nuances; hints of ripe
cherry, peach, liquorice and dried red currant in addition to notes of nutmeg up to ethereal aromas
such as wax, incense and powder. Elegant and majestic taste. Full-bodied and spacious wine, silky
tannins and a spice finish. Pleasant cinchona as a bittering touch and excellent balance.
Pairing: Villa di Nozzole" suggests it with tagliatelle spread with the rolling pin and San Miniato white truffle.
