Birillo
2016

Costa Toscana IGT

The Marsiliana Estate is located in Manciano, in southern Maremma in Tuscany where the sea is felt in the climate, seen in the light, and breathed in the air. Because the estate’s territory is so extensive, the vineyards have been positioned at optimum plots among the hillocks for a total of 20 hectares. The soils of Marsiliana are composed prevalently of sand and silt over clay, giving life to extraordinary Mediterranean expressions of a Bordeaux blend.

Birillo is an original red, very easy to drink and appealing. It could even be described as a “mini-Super Tuscan.” It is, in fact, a pleasant wine for all types of meals, with characteristics like that of a Super Tuscan—power, depth, color, refinement, and with a typical composition of aromas found in those great wines; yet it is made to be simpler, smoother, and overall more accessible for everyone.

Tasting and pairing notes: 
Solar and intense, full and vibrant, fragrant aromatic ensemble of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grapes from the vineyards of Maremma. A dark purple wine, with the charm of dark fruits, blackberries and crunchy blueberries, enriched with the intense and balsamic notes of cardamom, caper flower, thyme and myrtle. On the palate it is an audacious velvet of wild berry jam, dark chocolate and juniper, with the flexuous balance in savory and defined tannins. The liquorice delightful finish has the touch of a iodate Mediterranean night breeze. Pairing: buckwheat gnocchi with speck and sage
