Wine Toscana IGT Bragia Tenuta Larnianone

Bragia, composed of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Sangiovese stretches for 6 hectares and the composition of the soil consists of loose clay and sand with many fossils of seashell which bless the wine with a marked elegance.

The vision behind Bragia wine is to challenge our terroir with international varieties while maintaining Sangiovese grapes in order to keep our Tuscan roots.

Each harvest is made after an accurate summer pruning which takes more than a month due to hand picking of different varieties at various time intervals.

After the must is vinified separately into concrete vats the wine is then blended with the correct proportion of different grape varieties which is defined in relation to the quality that the variety themselves reach and is then aged for 12 months in new and used French fine grain 400 liters tonneaux.
