La Ghirlanda (the Garland) is a crown, an ornament, a celebration. La Ghirlanda is a special place: a wood, on Mocenni estate, surrounding the vineyard of this wine. A wine that crowns the palate, adorns the sense of smell and celebrates a sensorial experience, embracing the unforgettable moment of the first taste.
Fermentation of the Sangiovese grapes takes place in stainless steel vats where maceration lasts 16/18 days at a controlled temperature of 28/30° C. Shortly after malolactic fermentation the wine is transferred into oak barrels. The bottled wine then remains stored in the cellar for refinement prior to its release.
Intense ruby red in color. An ample and complex bouquet, with distinct notes of flowers, fresh fruit and spices. The palate is vigorous and vibrant, a lovely acidic vein fused with a lot of flavor make it an ample and balanced wine. Elegant and soft tannins. The finish and aftertaste are persistent and lingering. A true and authentic expression of Sangiovese.
