IXE

TEMPRANILLO Rosso Toscana IGT

For many years, the unsuspected presence of the Tempranillo grape in San Miniato was signalled only by the letter X, eloquent testimony to the then-unknown history of the grape.
The name of the wine derives from the Tuscan pronunciation of the letter X, “IXE”.

Blend

Tempranillo 100%

Age of Vines

Smell

Floral and fruit fragrances taking turns in the wine's aroma are the first characteristic of this vine, but its principal power is in the intense minerality and savory attributes that are also present in the nose.

Taste

Very smooth like good Tempranillo, but arising from the soils of San Miniato it becomes more complex with higher acidity, making this wine very fluid and drinkable as it cleanses the palate.

Pairings

Sweet and sour braised or overdone meat, game, preparations with chocolate.
