Grapes: The Chianti Riserva D.O.C.G. Fortebraccio is produced from the best Sangiovese and Merlot grapes of our oldest vinyards.
Vinification Aging and Refinement: The maceration takes place in concrete vats for a period of 20 days to best extract tanks e colour. The wine is aged in French oak barriques for 12 months and then is refined for 6 months in bottle to complete the cycle, before being sold.
Organoleptic profile: At first sight, the colour is a beautiful deep ruby red. The olfactory baggage unfolds between tertiary notes of tobacco and leather, associated with aromas of fruit jam, blackberries and plums, with a few notes of aromatic herbs, such as sage and rosemary. Soft in the mouth, it shows tannins fused to the alcoholic component, for a final that gives a fruity aftertaste.
The family business comes from the dream of two siblings, Tania and Luigi, inherited from their father, Beniamino. The dream, long left in the drawer by their father, turned into a project, when the siblings asked him to help them in making it happen.
The passion of Beniamino for the vineyards, the love for wine, passed on to his children, and his entrepreneurial talent, have given life to “Tenuta Moriniello”.
The journey, which lasted almost five years, has led the Moriniello family to retrace the marvellous places of Tuscany, meeting people, listening to stories and legends, and closing with the belief that great wines born from enchanting places. Places characterized by sinuous hills and territories exposed perennially to the sun, which, not surprisingly, give the best grapes, because collecting from the earth all that our eyes identify, simply, as wonderful landscapes.
