"Umore & Luce" I.G.T Red
Red Tuscany IGT
“Wine is composed of Mood and Light” Galileo Galilei (1564-1642)
"Umore & Luce" - "Mood & Light" has been the spark around which the Priorino Cellar has been built. The same choice of vine revolved around the ultimate goal.
The grape mix of Cabernet Franc (45%), Cabernet Sauvignon (30%), Petit Verdot (15%) and Merlot (10%), has resulted in a powerful decisive full bodied wine, almost austere and almost impenetrable.
Like the other wines, also for Mood and Light, the harvesting and selection of the grapes is almost maniacal, and then after the fermentation is transferred into French oak barrique barrels of 225lt, where it remains aging for 24 months until bottling.
It is an intense ruby red with violet reflections, the initial sensation is of damp earth and minerals, followed by those of red berry fruits (blackberry and raspberry), hard and crispy, embellished by an increasing spiciness, the combined elegant recalls that of menthol with a perception of tomato stalks and a delicate wood aroma with a phenol background.
