Casale del Giglio Shiraz IGT

Grape Variety: Shiraz

 

Alcohol: 13% Vol

 

Vinification:Only the ripest and healthiest grapes are selected for vinification. Two days of cold maceration at around 10℃ favour the extraction of the grape's typical aromas and rich colour.Vinification continues with the punching down of the floating cap three or four times a day to ensure that the colour and noble tannins in the skins are released into the new wine.The fermenting must is racked and returned (the process of delestage)several times during the initial stages of the 10-12 day fermentation process which takes place at 26-28℃. Then the new wine is carefully drawn off into stainless steel vats for malolactic fermentation.8-12 months of barrique aging and a further 6 in the bottle complete the process.

 

Colour:Deep ruby-red with violet nuances


Bouquet: Blackcurrant, blueberry and wild cherry, black pepper,cinnamon and cardamom on the nose is intense and ample

Taste: The promise of dark berries on the nose is fulfilled on the palate. It is warm and luscious but supported by fine tannins, all the fruit and spice return in the lengthy finish.
