“A juicy, smooth-but-serious blend of Sangiovese,
Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon”

Oz Clarck
Pocket Wine Book 2014

“A one-size-fits-all wine for our favorite
Italian foods. A terrific super Tuscan blend.” 90/100

Monica Larner
Wine Enthusiast

“This supple, spicy beauty is one of the
best Italian wines I’ve had in ages.”

Jonathan Ray
The Daily Telegraph
July 28, 2008

Cabernet Sauvignon (25%).
Viticulture: Biodynamic (since first planting, 1997).
Average production: 130,000 bottles (10,833 cases).
Appellation: Maremma Toscana IGT
First vintage: 2005
Average yield: Sangiovese 55 hl/ha; Merlot 45 hl/ha;
Cabernet Sauvignon: 40 hl/ha.
Average alcohol content: 13.5% vol.
Ideal serving temperature: 14–18° C (57–64° F).

The grapes are picked by hand and harvested
based on their phenolic maturation, using small
crates. In the cellar, they undergo fermentation
in stainless steel vats. After malolactic fermentation,
the wine undergoes élevage mostly in cement vats
until it is blended to be bottled. A small selection of
the wine is matured in barriques for ten months
and then added to the final blend.
   Mongrana is the quintessential expression of the
colors, sights and sounds of the Maremma region:
fruity and intense, fresh and embracing, the wine
takes its name – and its character – from that of
the noble family of knights depicted by the Italian
Renaissance poet Ludovico Ariosto in his epic
masterpiece Orlando Furioso (“Mad Orlando”).
   Mongrana is bottled and packaged exclusively
in the following formats: 0.750 liter [12 or 6 bottle
cardboard box]; 1.5 liter [1 bottle cardboard box].
   Mongrana is produced without using any animal
products or byproducts. It is therefore suitable for
vegans and vegetarians.
