Wine name:
Atis - Bolgheri Superiore D.O.C. - Guado al Melo

Classification:
Dry red wine

Alcohol content:
14% Vol

Grape varieties:
80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Cabernet Franc & Merlot.

Area of origin:
Grapes from selected vineyard parcels in the hills of Castagneto Carducci in Bolgheri that run along the Tuscan coastline in the province of Livorno. Alluvial soil, with good pebble-gravel texture and moderate clay content. Mediterranean climate refreshed by sea winds. In the summer there is a significant temperature range between day and night.

Vinification & maturation:
Vinified without correctives or additives that would alter the original characteristics of the grapes. Refinement sur-lies for 24 months in barrique (only 10% new) and almost 12 months in the bottle.

Tasting notes:
Colour: deep ruby tending to garnet.
Aroma: clean and elegant. Once in the glass the various elements evolve little by little to its rich bouquet of spice, red fruit, licorice and balsamic hints of peppermint (the latter a typical mark of the Bolgheri terroir).
Taste: intense and smooth palate, well-balanced and with a long finish.

Suggested pairings:
Pairs perfectly with meat, rich pasta dishes, wild game, aged and blue cheese. Wonderful as a “meditation wine”.

Serve at a temperature of 18° C, opening the bottle at least 20 minutes before.
Medium-long ageing potential.
