Monte Bernardi Tzingarella IGT Rosso 2018 - 750ML
The former owner of Monte Bernardi Stak Aivaliotis has given the super tuscan the name Tzingana, which means gypsy. He wanted to express that the international grape varieties used for this red wine - Merlot (45%), Cabernet Sauvignon (20%), Cabernet Franc (20%) and Petit Verdot (15%) - which originally come from France, travel around the world like gypsies. In other words, these international grape varieties can be found today in almost every wine-growing region in the world. The unique character of Tzingana Toscana Rosso IGT is not least due to the careful manual harvest, the joint vinification of all four grape varieties and last but not least the terroir of Panzano in Chianti. After natural alcoholic fermentation in stainless steel tanks, the wine is transferred to French oak barrels, where it undergoes biological acid degradation. The wine remains in oak barrels for at least 24 months, after which it matures for another 12 months in the bottle. This full-bodied wine is marked by complex and soft fruit components. Its tannins, its acidity and the intense fruity cherry note are unmistakably Tuscan. But also the typical Bordeaux aromas of fresh black currants, blueberries and pleasant mineral undertones can be found. You can store this wine with a clear conscience for 20 years - or you can drink it right away, which also promises the highest drinking pleasure, by the way even in the large bottle format with 1.5 liters. Tzingana is the proof that the current owner of Monte Bernardi, Michael Schmelzer, understands not only Sangiovese, but also "very international" varieties, just like himself.
