85% Sangiovese, 15% Merlot
Tramonto d’Oca is one of the wines that represents Poggio Bonelli at the height of its expression. The strict selection of the grapes and the constant care that accompanies the wine in the cellar forge a fascinating, unique product, displaying a characteristic ruby red color with garnet hues. The intense and persistent bouquet of red jams and spices (pepper, cinnamon) gives way to hints of tobacco and cocoa and closes with a burnt earth and leather sensation. Powerful tannins on the palate. Warm and savory on the finish.
Usually for the Sangiovese takes place during the third week of September, for the Merlot one week before
Traditional, with fermentation in stainless steel vats at a strictly controlled temperature (max 28/30° C), followed by lengthy maceration on the skins (18/20 days). Aging for 16-18 months in small French oak barrels, followed by 6 months in the bottle.
Tuffaceous with presence of soil skeleton and some argillaceous schist.
