DIADEMA “INPRUNETIS” is an exceptional Tuscan red wine made from a meticulous selection of Sangiovese aged in Terracotta Amphora. INPRUNETIS means “within the pine woods”, the ancient name of the hills of Impruneta and this wine unique wine was born from the desire to discover new flavour and tasting experiences with ancient vinification techniques already used in the Etruscan civilization period. DIADEMA INPRUNETIS was matured in small not glassified Terracotta Amphoras of 600 liters for 9 months. Terracotta Amphora allow indirect microxygenation, similarly to barriques, avoiding reduction excesses during maturation but prevents barrique flavoring. The wine colour is garnet-red with glints of ruby . The complex nose shows a rich and aromatic medley of ripe red fruits, wild red berries, violets and a distinctive mineral-earthy aromas deriving from the aging in terracotta amphora. The tannins are elegant, fully integrated into a well balanced, medium-body structure. During the finish mineral notes give again a great freshness.
