I.G.T. Umbria rosso
The aristocratic elegance of Cabernet Sauvignon combined with the authenticity of the Sangiovese in a match that is stunning for its style and depth, this wine is the fruit of an ongoing process to reach ever more convincing results in the search for a wine that will outlast fashion and market trends. But the more one seeks high level results, the less definitive any target achieved can seem. And it is precisely this infinite passion that pushes us, because it is unending, to love the work of development in the vineyard and the cellar. A synthesis if this ongoing search for ever-better results, Calanco is the mouthpiece for our passion, the spirit even of these lands and the people who live in them. A wine that is appreciated not only for what it gives but above all for what it is, a concentration of the commitment, passions and hopes of dozens of people who over time have not only contributed to its fullness and elegance but have given it a unique and rare conceptual depth. A deep ruby red with purple tints, it has scents of red fruits, redcurrants, raspberries and bilberries along with spicy and balsamic notes in the glass. The taste is intense and elegant, and the typical Cabernet spiciness becomes a gentle flavour of paprika. A smooth, mellowed tannin gives a long-lasting soft silky finish with a delicate hint of vanilla.
Accompaniments
It is well suited to main courses of stewed and braised meat, very good too with hard cheeses and those that mature slowly. Recommended too as a wine for meditating!Recommended temperature: 20° C
Origins of the name
Ample but with the finest components, delicate in balance but with a depth to take your breath away, it is not afraid of time, it is smoothed by time. It is the calanque, Calanco
