The colour scale for red wines ranges from purple to ruby, garnet or orange- red (with intermediate shades). In general, purple is the characteristic colour of a young wine; as the wine gradually ages, it loses some of its red to become more brick-coloured. All this is equally joined by the bouquets and flavours the wine develops through ageing in barrels. Wines are best enjoyed and appreciated by paying careful attention to the serving temperature: depending on the ageing period, the serving temperature ranges from 16 °C for a young red wine through to 20 °C for a well-aged wine.
The Bindi Sergardi family has a very long history, dating back to 1349. The family has always lived on and loved the land of Siena, in the classic Chianti area, and has always been dedicated to wine production. Alessandra Casini Bindi Sergardi represents the 23rd generation of the family and carries on its values of integrity, authenticity and audacity.
The three estates of I Colli, Mocenni, and Marcianella have a strong cultural identity, promoted and recounted through the wines, which express a clear connection with the territory.
Famiglia Cotarella was founded in 1979 in Montefiascone by the two brothers Renzo and Riccardo Cotarella, with the aim of returning luster to a unjustly forgotten region. In 2004, it expanded by the acquisition of another winery in Umbria. From January 2017, Dominga, Marta and Enrica Cotarella, a new, third generation, has officially arrived at the helm of the family. In this new vision, Famiglia Cotarella is the brand that includes Falesco, Cotarella, Intrecci and Liaison.
TENUTA GUADO AL TASSO
The Guado al Tasso estate is located in the small, but prestigious, Bolgheri DOC region, on the coast of upper Maremma, about one hundred kilometers southwest of Florence. This appellation has a relatively recent history. DOC Bolgheri was approved in 1994 and, since then, it has become an internationally recognised benchmark for the Italian and international winemaking arena. The estate covers an area of over 1,000 hectares (2,500 acres); 320 (790 acres) which are planted with vines, in a beautiful plain encircled by rolling hillsides known as the "Bolgheri Amphitheatre" due to its particular shape. The vineyards are planted predominantly with Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Vermentino grapes. The nearby sea provides a mild climate with a constant breeze that mitigates the summer heat and alleviates the harsh winter weather, maintaining a clear sky and a high level of sunlight exposure.
