• "Di Macchia" Vermentino Toscana IGT 2020

      “Di Macchia” Vermentino Toscana IGT 2020

      Wonderful, energetic Vermentino with a small part of Petit Manseng, which gives it freshness and "crunch". Surprises on the nose with grapefruit, rosemary and a hint of mirabelle plum and thyme. On the palate, honeydew melon, peach, Mediterranean spices and in the convincing final, hints of citrus fruits and white pepper. SUPERIORE.DE

    • Sangiovese Maremma Toscana DOC 2018

      Sangiovese Maremma Toscana DOC 2018

      Fresh nose with citrus notes and dark red berries. On the palate complexity meets fresh acidity, tobacco and spicy notes. Very individual interpretation of Sangiovese, the harmony is impressive and its middle weight and ever present freshness make for a nice drinking flow. SUPERIORE.DE

    • "Frank" Rosso Toscana IGT 2018

      “Frank” Rosso Toscana IGT 2018

      Deep ruby red with a beautiful sheen. On the nose some plum, black cherry with slightly animal notes. Fleshy and taut on the palate, very powerful and harmonious. Not an off-the-peg wine, but a stormy, tomboyish and gripping Cabernet with good length and a powerful finish. Not for elegance drinkers, but rather a crisp, opulent food companion that leaves nothing to be desired, especially with game dishes. Be sure to aerate it sufficiently! SUPERIORE.DE

    • "Gin di Serafico" Maremma Dry

      “Gin di Serafico” Maremma Dry

      The special thing about London Dry Gin is not only the typical, natural juniper note, but also the strict production specifications. The botanicals (fruits, herbs and spices), which are usually (and also here) top secret, must be added before distillation and artificial flavours have no place in this product. The additional ethanol added must be exclusively of agricultural origin, so that it can rightly be claimed that a London Dry Gin is produced according to a strict purity law.

      The Italians - and also the people behind Frank & Serafico - firmly believe in the old adage that Italian food and drink celebrate the genius of nature, not the person who prepared it. They represent an unbridled desire and passion to gently capture the scent of the herbs of Tuscany's Maremma in their gin, alongside the classic juniper, and reflect it as authentically as possible. This is done using a traditional distillation process at low temperature (max. 70°C) to protect the aromas as much as possible.

      The result is a London Dry Gin that, in addition to all its typicity and class, also carries an exciting Maremma component that makes it an extraordinary experience to drink. SUPERIORE.DE

    About the winemakersFrank & SeraficoTuscany | Maremma
    Frank & Serafico

    The most southeastern part of the Maremma near Capalbio was already called in Roman times "Vallis Aurea" (golden valley), because here particularly good soil and climatic conditions let grow also particularly good wines and fruits. A small reminiscence of this time is the golden dot on the labels.

    A little further to the northwest, directly on the Tyrrhenian Sea, is the Maremma National Park, where not only some of the vines stand, but also malt and hops, from which Pier Paolo Pratesi brews one of the best craft beers in Italy. Of course, there are strict rules in the national park and every step is strictly controlled. Even if the wines are not yet certified, the vines grow in almost untouched nature - without any chemicals.

    Sebastiano Pompa, the long-time General Manager of the famous Fattoria le Pupille, was already considering producing wines in this coastal golden zone with Pier Paolo Pratesi at that time, because both were attracted by the special conditions. Compact clay layers from a depth of one and a half metres under light, loamy-sandy soils, extreme temperature fluctuations and the constant sea breeze are unique here and most comparable to Bolgheri. Old clones and a dense vineyard of 5-6,000 vines per hectare ensure natural yield limitation, elegant tannins and a moderate alcohol content.

    For the white wine, the two oenologists used Vermentino, which has always produced excellent results in the Maremma, and a tiny proportion of Petit Manseng to obtain fresh acidity without changing the taste of the Vermentino. The red wine is dominated by Sangiovese, which is refined, if necessary, with 5% Cabernet Franc or Merlot. The vines have an average age of 18 years. It is matured in tonneaux and barriques with delicate toasting from Burgundy. The result is elegant wines with fine fruit and silky, elegant tannins, which represent this special terroir very independently. SUPERIORE.DE
