Daniele Ricci - Io Cammino da Solo 2012

Grape variety: Timorasso

Gradation: 14,5

Refinement: Terracotta amphora for 100 days

Food Match: Matured Cheeses, Meditation

The Timorasso "Io Cammino da Solo" by Ricci is produced with carefully selected grapes, harvested by hand usually in mid-September. The bunches, brought to the cellar, are crushed and destemmed and fermented spontaneously, using only indigenous yeasts, in terracotta amphorae from Impruneta with a very long maceration on the skins, which can last over 100 days. At the end of maceration, the wine is racked into chestnut barrels where it is aged for about 12 months before being bottled without clarification or filtration.

"Io Cammino da Solo" has a bright orange colour, slightly veiled. The nose shows intense aromas of stone fruit, including apricot and medlar, aromas of citrus and dried fruit, floral notes of hawthorn and white flowers, spicy hints of white pepper, resin and a hint of Mediterranean herbs. The taste is rich, dense and savory, with a nice spicy texture and delicate tannins. This, from the Ricci winery, is a precise, pungent and versatile "orange wine", characterized by a slight oxidation well integrated with its structure.
