Interesting facts
Tauleto is a dialect term applied by local farmers to a plot with abundant water resources. The springs running under the Sangiovese in the Tauleto vineyard contribute to minimising water stress in the vines. To make Tauleto, Umberto Cesari recovered the Uva Longanesi, a nearly-forgotten native grape.
A red wine of superb structure and longevity made only in the finest growing years. 90% Sangiovese, 10% Uva Longanesi. The vineyards average 20 years old and yield 65 quintals per hectare. The grapes are quality-selected, then the must ferments in specialised, temperature-controlled fermenters that allow a lengthy maceration on the skins. It matures 24 months in 225-litre new Allier oak barrels then ages in the bottle a further 6 months.
Appearance: Intense ruby red with sumptuous purple highlights
Bouquet: Wild red berryfruit, ripe black cherry, with nuances of rose petals, pungent balsam, and spice.
Palate: Majestic entry, with succulent, pulpy red fleshed fruit, complemented by impressions of spice, pipe tobacco, and pencil lead. Tannins are noticeable, but supple. The finish is lengthy and intense.
