Made from Sangiovese grapes. This indication expresses all the organoleptic complexity of this wine.
Sangiovese is in fact a rich, rough, difficult varietyfrom this area. Accordo wants to convey this in all its noble and aging potential, the result of agricultural, enological and character choices that serve to express its strength and its character, with strongly ties to our food traditionsfor important occasions.
Rich, with an aggressive character, Accordo does not easily fit identifiable categories. It requires the ability to enter with self-confidence into the world of the ancient, multifaceted and complex personality of one of the wines with the strongest ties to the Italian wine tradition.

Harvesting is done in mid-October, when the grapes have reached a perfect balance between the sweetness of the juice and softness of the tannins. Fermentation in cement tanks at 27°C for 8-10 days, followed by contact with the skins for 15-20 days. After racking and malolactic fermentation,it is put in barriques for a period of 8-12 months, softening its roughness, rounding its tannins and reaching its balance. It is then bottled and left to rest for at least 12 months.
It goes especially well with hearty dishes, typical of the Umbrian tradition: bean soups, roasted meats, game, cold cuts and aged cheeses.
