A Supertuscan made from a single vineyard Merlot originally planted in 1967 on a northeastern slope on the hills of Villa Calcinaia at Greve in Chianti. The wine is aged for 24 months in 225 litre barrels of French oak.
The organoleptic analyses of this wine reveals a deep and intense colour. The bouquet is faint at first but gradually expands and increases in volume thanks to the oxygenation provided by the steering of the glass. On the palate the wine provides a firm and smooth structure and the tannins remind us that this Merlot “chianteggia”.
Casarsa goes deliciously with refined dishes of red meat or game. Excellent with grilled meats, roasts and traditional Tuscan recipes with wild boar.
