Soil and Origin
Soil:Clay topsoil, very calcareous.
Origin:Montalcino, Southern Tuscany, Italy
Elegant, harmonious with hints of apricot, honeysuckle, raisins, and honey.
Unctuous, with dried-apricot, raisin, and honey flavors.
Finishes with nuances of almond and honey.
Florus is ideal for dipping biscotti or as an accompaniment to aged or ripe cheeses, particularly Tuscan Pecorino.
Made with grapes that naturally dry on the vine until mid-October and beyond. The raisined grapes are crushed and pressed; the juice is slowly fermented at 59°F for several months until 14-15% alcohol content is reached. A small portion of the wine is aged for one year in barriques of French oak and then blended with the balance in stainless steel before bottling and release.
