VITAE SANGIOVESE 'SINGLE VINEYARD' is another first in India by Fratelli. Created by using grapes from 1 single vineyard, Plot C in Garwar and by selecting patches within the same plot, pruning these plants to reduce yield per acre so that aromas and taste is more complex and elegant.Plot C has been selected for its soil composition, mixed with rock and sand, a perfect composition to let plants absorb mineral components and remain fresh due to high drainage of sandy soils making our Sangiovese grapes perfect to make a Burgundy style Sangiovese. Keeping in mind Finesse, Elegance and Complexity, which define VITAE SANGIOVESE, our vinfication technique is made with low extraction in order to obtain more refined and elegant aromas and flavors. After alcoholic fermentation is over, the wine is then transferred in new French oak barrels to make the tannins 'rounded', 'elegant' and 'fine'.
TASTING NOTES: An aromatic wine with nose of raspberries and violets. On the palate, the wine is round and full with lots of young fruit character coupled with silky tannins that makes the wine very attractive.
VITAE SANGIOVESE grapes come from one single plot vineyard, Plot C in Garwar. We select patches within the same plot, pruning these plants in a way to reduce yield per acre so that aromas and taste become more complex and elegant and transferred to the wine. VITAE SANGIOVESE is made by fermenting with skins on stainless steel tanks but following a light extraction technique so that the wine style will become closer to a Burgundy Pinot Noir. Once alcoholic fermentation is over, the wine is then transferred into new French oak barrels for ageing which makes the wine elegant.
