Piandaccoli Inprimus Super Tuscan
The estate began with the cultivation of vineyards by monks in 1100, before the phylloxera epidemic that hit Europe in the mid-nineteenth century wiped out the indigenous varietals present in Tuscany. Piandaccoli emerges in 1950 with the production of Chianti, but it was the vision of Dr. Giampaolo Bruni that set the stage for this incredible winery's future. He collaborated with the University of Florence, using DNA testing on grapes found in the Medici tombs, to reintroduce autochthonous varietals prevalent during the Italian Renaissance.
This is a blend of Sangiovese, Pugnitello, Foglia Tonda. The exceptional nose explodes with notes of sweet spice, mint and graphite, culminating in an aromatic crescendo of plums and cherries. The great structure, alcohol balance and fresh notes characterized by soft and velvety tannins combined with an intense aromatic persistence, make this wine extremely pleasant on the palate.
