The wine with a noble name, dedicated to Gherardino dei Gherardini, progenitor of the illustrious family that built Vignamaggio in the fourteenth century. Our Riserva Gherardino, balanced and enveloping, is produced with Sangiovese grapes for 80-90% and Merlot for 10-20%. Aged for 18-20 months in oak barrels and barriques. The grapes come from the vineyards of Prato, Querceto and Solatìo. Pairings Chicken thighs alla cacciatora in pepper cream; also indicated first with local meats and game or tagliatelle with wild boar ragù. Color Bright ruby color tempered by pomegranate shades. Aroma The essence of red fruits advances: black cherries, blackberries and ripe cherries accompanied by a spicy tone and notes of intense aroma of toasted tobacco. Taste A balanced fusion between the taste of wild berries with a soft and brilliant tannin and an enveloping licorice finish. Alcohol 14.5% vol.
