IGT Toscana

Leuta Nautilus IGT Toscana Doc Cortona comes from a vineyard cultivated in Cortona - Tuscany - IT -. The intrinsic characteristics of the soil and the distinctiveness of the climate guarantee the production of wines of particular intensity and elegance. In creating this wine, the best barrels of Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Syrah and Sangiovese have been selected in order to express the potential of the estate.
C: intense, deep-ruby ​​red.
N: very complex and intense, fruity with blackberries and blueberries with a delicate touch of cherry, flanked by a slightly sweet note of oak  combined with sensations of tobacco and peat.
B: wine with excellent body, elegant and complex with an enveloping sensation of ripe fruit, excellent balance between fruit and minerality. Highlights are blackcurrant and cherry which interact well with a mineral note that recalls graphite to give the wine a savory sensation and a long finish of toasted almonds and extremely velvety tannins.
Ideal in combination with complex dishes with a long cooking time.
