A well-structured red Toscana
Balifico from Castello di Volpaia is a blend of Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon. This Super Tuscan vineyard is located at more than 400 meters of altitude, between Coltassala and Casanova. The vines are planted on a terroir composed of decaying sandstone, providing light soil that is rich in limestone and texture.
At the tasting, Balifico 2013 from Castello di Volpaia presents a lively ruby red colour with dark purple legs. The nose is refined and elegant. Beautiful aromas of blackberries and blueberries develop alongside notes of wood and cinnamon. On the palate the wine is smooth, round and well-structured. One can easily notice the magnificent persistence of the red fruit aftertaste.
