Nudo IGT Toscana Rosso is our no sulfites added wine and is produced completely with Sangiovese grapes.
The grapes were harvested by hand the 25 th of September and fermented in steel tanks for 30 day without any yeasts or fermentation activator.
After that we put the wine in 25 hl oak barrels for 6 months.
Once it’s bottled the wine with no sulfites added will gain a maturation which will lead to a natural evolution of taste and aroma.

Comments: Balanced wine which is at its best from 2/4 years after harvesting.
Food pairing: This wine goes well with any kind of food: important and rich first courses, from pasta with meat sauces to baked lasagna, but it is at its best served with all meat second courses , from grilled meat (the typical Florentine T-boned steak) to roasts.
