Description

Valcalepio Rosso Riserva Bemu 2017 Tosca

Variety: Merlot 70% and Cabernet Sauvignon 30%

Organic

Ruby red color, with garnet shades.

The nose is intense and very, complex and refined. We feel the berries in jam, blackberries and blueberries. Also the plum and different flowers with pink and violet in particular. Sweet spices with vanilla, licorice and leather and tobacco emphasize the olfactory prospect. More notes of a dull fireplace, and toasted ideas increase the complexity of an excellent wine.

On the palate it is confirmed for power and elegance at the same time. Good softness, with well blended glycerine and capable of giving remarkable creaminess. The alcohol content also adds pseudo-heat. On the other hand, the mineral texture, the freshness and the pleasant tannic presence are excellent. Fulfilling and satisfying. The finish is very long and decidedly persistent with aromas of ripe fruit, spices and aromatic herbs.

Excellent representation of Italian Bordeaux style. Without any hesitation it ranks among the best Lombard reds.

Valcalepio Rosso Riserva Bemu 2017 Tosca

Tosca  cultivates the vine and vinifies the grapes produced following the dictates of organic agriculture. The vineyards are in Pontida, in the westernmost part of the Valcalepio appellation.

The soils are different, because here the substrate is made up of limestone-clayey rock from the Cretaceous period and a particular type of Lombard Flysh, that of Pontida. Flysh is composed of sedimentary deposits formed in the marine environment.

Type of cultivation: spurred cordon, with a density of 5000 plants per hectare, with a yield of 50 quintals.

The harvest is carried out manually in small boxes, and the alcoholic fermentation takes place in stainless steel containers.

Refine in 500-liter oak tonneaux for 23 months. After the blending of the two varieties, it ages for another 6 months in steel containers and then another three months in the bottle.

The Valcalepio Denomination extends and embraces almost the entire province of Bergamo from east to west. From Sarnico on Lake Iseo, right up to Pontida.
