LA CERRETINA 2016 MAGNUM
La Cerretina is Pacina’s only white wine, orange wine in reality, and is simply year in year out a stunning beast of majestic beauty and infinite depth and prowess. It comes from beyond-organically farmed vines of the traditional Chianti white varieties Trebbiano and Malvasia del Chianti growing on the typical “Tufo di Siena” soil, which is mostly clay-sand in its composition. It ferments with its native yeasts in cement, where it macerates with the skins for 6 days, and ages for at least 14 months in used oak and traditional acacia barrels. Pulsating with untamable vitality and rich and emotional expressiveness, it marries full, ripe fruit with an almost infinite mineral and almost spicy depth. It chants a primeval epic poem of ripe medlar fruit, curry leaf and lime honey with dried saffron, smoked tamarind and caramelised macadamia nuts.
