A PERFECT AREA FOR WINE PRODUCTION
The company is located at the foot of the Suvereto hills and a few kilometres from the coast, in particular from the wonderful Elba Island. A perfect area for wine production thanks to a soil particularly rich in minerals and a microclimate that thanks to the recirculation of air from the sea maintains a mild climate throughout the year.
A LAND DONATED
My company Terradonnà (land donated from woman to woman) takes this name because I like to remember how much dedication my mom put into the cultivation of her land and the gift she gave me by entrusting it to me, this name is a thank you to my family who handed me down the passion for this job. A great effort in the restructuring of the company to obtain high-quality products, certain of the great qualities of this territory, which, due to the particular characteristics of the mineral-rich subsoil, offers wines that are pleasant when young and surprising in long ageing.
PRASIO: TUSCAN RED WINE DESCRIPTION
In our territory, international varieties have the highest expression and blending cabernet sauvignon and 50% merlot has been a rewarding choice over the years.
In August, when the sun of Val di Cornia rouses the song of cicadas and the temperatures are very high even at night, the merlot is harvested in the early morning hours and will create 50% of this wine.
Careful selection in the vineyard in small bunches (about 500 gr. per plant) gives us a guarantee of the highest quality. The operation is repeated at the beginning of September with the cabernet. The result is a full-bodied but elegant wine, complex due to its tertiary flavours resulting from the soil rich in clay and minerals.
PRODUCTION METHOD OF TUSCAN RED WINE - PRASIO
Manual harvest of the grapes, steeping in vitrified cement tanks at a temperature of 24° where it remains for about 21 days, 60% aged in cement tanks for 12 months, 40% vitrified in French oak barrels and refined for 2 years in the bottle.
intense ruby red hue, the whole smell aromas of myrtle and eucalyptus emerge along with blueberry and blackcurrant berries, an evolution of dark chocolate and an accent of leather and spices emerge. In the mouth, it is warm and soft, with good structure, velvety tannins and long finish.
