Sanchimento-IGT-Toscana-Bianco-2021-and-Chianti-Superiore-2019

The Sanchimento IGT Bianco Toscano, which has always been considered very versatile, is a wonderful match for savoury snacks and meals based on delicate dishes such as vegetable soups, fish, shellfish, white meats, vegetables and fresh cheeses.

While for the Chianti Superiore DOCG, a red wine, the approach to consumption changes. Even the Chianti Consortium suggests lowering the temperature in order to fully enjoy its pleasantness, freshness of perfumes and aromas in summer.

THE IMPORTANCE OF SERVICE TEMPERATURE

Sparkling Wines are served at a temperature of 4-6 °C.

White wines are divided into 2 categories:

  • the young and fresh white wines, which are aged only in steel and should be drunk within a few months, should be served at a temperature between 8-10°C;
  • the more structured white wines that have a longer refinement and more evolved aromas should be served at a temperature between 10-12°C.

 

Rosé wines, on the other hand, have some of the characteristics of both white and red wines, especially the hints and aromas of whites and the body of reds. This middle ground means that they should be served at an intermediate temperature between white wines and red wines at a temperature of 12-14°C.

 

Red wines are also divided into 2 categories:

  • young red wines to be able to appreciate their vinous aroma and delicious floral and fresh fruit notes should be served at a temperature between 14-16°C;
  • long-aged red wines, or evolved red wines, with great structure and tannins, should be served at a temperature of 16-18 °C emphasizing not only the elegance of the wine, but above all the tertiary aromas and the pleasant taste given by the balance of the soft and hard parts of the wine.

 

THE SANCHIMENTO IGT 2021

Wines-for-the-summer-from-Fattoria-del-Colle

Wines-for-the-summer-from-Fattoria-del-Colle

Organic, from a great harvest and with a small orange addition. A small Supertuscan where nature and creativity are combined with surprising results.

The small Sanchimento vineyard, from which the grapes and the name of the wine come, was planted in 1989 around the chapel of San Clemente. This saint was Pope from 88 to 97 and died martyred in 99 in Sevastopol by being thrown into the sea with an anchor tied around his neck. In the local vernacular it is called with the oldest name of San Chimento.

 

WHAT EXACTLY ARE ORANGE WINES

Orange wine are in fact wines produced with white berried grapes but vinified like red wines, that is with maceration, or contact of the must with skins and yeasts. The duration of maceration can vary from a few days to several months, depending on the structure of the product to be obtained.

 

THE CHIANTI SUPERIORE DOCG 2019

In 2019, the climate was particularly favourable. The very rainy spring, especially in April and May, hydrated the soil allowing the vines to well withstand the summer heat. There were only two major disturbances (1st July and 15th September) for a total of almost 200 mm of water. They were the touch that was needed for a masterpiece harvest. The 2019 grapes were perfect with very small bunches and grapes, healthy and ripe in a very balanced way.

 

A SPECIAL FEATURE OF FATTORIA DEL COLLE

The ancestors of the current owner, the Socinis, a wealthy family from Siena, around 1550 had among their members 5 “free thinkers”. These had taken sides against the Church. Unfortunately in the sixteenth century it was very dangerous to challenge the papacy, the Socini were therefore excommunicated and their assets confiscated. The Fattoria del Colle farm returned to the same family after four hundred years, at the beginning of the twentieth century, when it was bought back by Donatella’s great-grandfather.

After 12 hours the clear must was decanted and allowed to heat up to 14 ° C when yeasts were added. Fermentation lasted over two weeks at a temperature of 16-18 ° C. Before bottling, the two types of wine were mixed and the “orange” part was about 10%.

TO KNOW MORE ABOUT CHIANTI SUPERIORE 2019

VARIETAL: Sangiovese with small additions of grapes authorized in Tuscany.

HARVEST: From September 27th to 30th, manual harvesting with selection of clusters in the vineyard to pick only the grapes with the same level of ripening. This involved repeated passages in the same vineyards and allowed to vinify the entire production separately and optimally. In the cellar a further selection of grapes (mechanical and manual) was carried out on the sorting table.

VINIFICATION: healthy and ripe bunches. Very small calibre berries. Perfectly lignified grape seeds. Excellent Ph and extractable polyphenol content. Vinification was regular: 10 days of alcoholic fermentation followed by 15 days of maceration in contact with grape skins.

QUANTITY PRODUCED: 45,000 bottles.

COLOUR: bright ruby red.

BOUQUET: rich in references to small ripe red fruits such as cherry, blackberry, blueberry. Floral suggestions that mainly concern the violet. The aroma is fine, clean, complex, rich in nuances.

TASTE: it has the typical and traditional elements of Chianti thanks to the good acid structure that promises longevity, silky tannin and an excellent flavour. In the mouth it is satisfying, harmonious and with a very pleasant persistence.
