Tilaria

This grand Tuscan red wine blends the strong flavours of berries with the flowery notes of violets, conveying a final flourish of spices. Tilaria combines 4 important vines: Cabernet, Sangiovese, Pugnitello and Syrah.

Tilaria

Cabernet Sauvignon

The Cabernet Sauvignon vine originates from the Bordeaux region, the Medoc and Graves areas in particular. It is one of the most widespread vines in the world and is particularly adapted for producing high quality wines with long ageing processes. The Cabernet Sauvignon adapts to the most diverse climate conditions and wine production techniques, as per its name: “sauvage”, wild.
It produces wines that are intense in colour, rich in tannin and aromatic flavours, and which have a successful ageing process. The structure of this vine allows for long macerations and improvement in barriques, which lead to the development over time of a complex and fascinating bouquet.

Syrah

It originates from the Caucasus and its name contains the historical journey of this grape through Syria or Persia (and the town of Shiraz). The Syrah needs a warm climate to reach a successful maturation for it to produce interesting wines from an aromatic point of view. In the Maremma terrains, the Syrah develops flavours of black fruits and berries such as blackberries, prunes, blackcurrants, black sour cherries and violets, combined with its typical flavour of black pepper, liquorice and often smoked aromas. Over time, the Syrah has the potential to be successfully improved in bottles and to undergo an organoleptic evolution. In the Tilaria it is present in grape blends and completes the aromatic bouquet with a variety of interesting notes of spices.

Sangiovese

The Sangiovese expresses the viticultural and wine making identity of Tuscany, it is the undisputed king of red wines from central Italy where it is present almost everywhere and has extremely ancient roots which date back to the times of the Etruscans who gave it the Latin name of “sanguis Jovis”. The flavours of the Sangiovese mainly come from red and black berries: blackberries, strawberries, cherries, sour black cherries, raspberries and blueberries. As far as the Maremma terrain is concerned, it is characterised by a good level of acidity, which allows the Sangiovese to have a long ageing process and an excellent minerality thanks to the terrains’ geology and especially fruity aromas due to the warm temperatures and the vicinity of the sea.

Cabernet Franc

The cabernet vine originates from the region of the Gironde in France. It is often used in combination with the Cabernet-Sauvignon and the Merlot to produce what is known as the “Taglio Bordolese” or the Bordeaux “Cut”. It is produced in its pure form and gives a bright ruby red wine, with plant and berry flavours, of particularly dense structure and tannins. In the Tilaria it conveys good balance and elegance to the wine.

Pugnitello

This is a rare local vine, which comes from the Grosseto region. The name comes from the expression “piccolo pugno”, small fist, for the size and shape of the grape bunches. It has a purple-red colour and a sweet taste of cherries and blackberries.
