Guido Gualandi Vinum Rosso 2013 Tuscany, Italy
Nose of ripe blackberry and blueberries with hints of spices. Full bodied, broad and tannic but balanced by a fresh acidity. Long finish.
About the winemaker
The Gualandi domain of seven hectares (half of it covered with vines) is located in Montespertoli in the Tuscan province of Florence, Italy. For its energy needs the domain uses 90% renewable energy and is working to get closer to 100%. Electricity is generated from photovoltaic panels. Rain water is kept underground and used in the house and on the farm. Hot water is generated by solar panels and heating by the branches from the pruning of olive trees. The use of tractors is minimised and most tasks are done manually. Guido Gualandi started making wine in 2002 and the farm was certified organic in 2008.
