Cabernet Franc 40%
16 months in fine and extra-fine grained French oak barriques, up to 20% new.
Turpino is a voluptuous blend of Cabernet Franc, Syrah and Merlot grown by Querciabella in Maremma.
Surrounded by a vigorous nature, the vineyards in Alberese benefit from the maritime climate that guarantees a good phenolic maturation of the grapes while retaining balanced levels of natural fruit acidity.
Intense ruby red with purple hues. Ripe on the nose, sweet aromas of cherries and berries and elegant notes of violets and rose petals meld into spices, white pepper and cedarwood as this juicy, expressive wine opens up in the glass. On the palate, the wine is perfectly balanced with very finely-textured tannins and good acidity. The flavours stay persistent and long, pleasantly tightening up on the finish.
