Description

History

Franco Ziliani, founder of Guido Berlucchi, decided in the early 2000s to invest in the production of great red wines in the emerging area of ​​Bolgheri in Tuscany. He bought the Caccia al Piano estate in 2003, after visiting the San Biagio vineyard. The company is located in Castagneto Carducci in the hamlet of Bolgheri, and was obtained through the restructuring of an ancient hunting fief owned by the Della Gherardesca family dating back to 1868. Franco’s children, Cristina, Arturo and Paolo, have and are continuing the exploration work of the Bolgheri area.

Grapes used

Merlot 60%

Production method

The grapes are harvested by hand and carefully selected before destemming and maceration in stainless steel vats. The alcoholic fermentation lasts about two weeks, followed by racking and malolactic fermentation. After a maturation period of about 16 months in wooden barrels, the different batches of wine are blended and refined in the bottle for a further 6 months.

Alcohol content

14.5%

Tasting notes

Intense and impenetrable ruby ​​red colour. On the nose notes of ripe fruit such as cherry, marasca cherry, raspberry, blackberry and blueberry, with herbaceous notes of eucalyptus and mint, minerality and spices such as tobacco, black pepper, vanilla and sandalwood. In the mouth the taste is full, enveloping, soft and warm. The final part of the sip reveals a fresh acidity and ripe tannins, with a good flavor probably due to the influence of the sea. In combination we see it very well with red meat dishes, such as grilled meat or even more complex game dishes.

Possible combinations

In combination it is excellent with well-structured first courses with meat sauce or with red meats in general. Also excellent with selections of medium-aged cheeses.
