Vino Rosso IGT Renzano
50% Cabernet Franc
In 2016 we planted a new vineyard with Cabernet Franc and Syrah in a big diversification from the wines Il Piano normally produces.
In 2021 we bottled the 2019 vintage under the label Renzano. After starting life in our concrete tanks it then spent 9 months in French oak.
This will without a doubt become the Carlesi Zucconi flagship wine over the next few years.
The Syrah gives it a deep, dark red colour to the point of being almost purple, with the Cabernet Franc adding brightness. There is a peppery perfume blending with more robust grapes. The Cabernet Franc seems to have added a savoury character behind the meaty black pepper and dark fruits of the Syrah.
As a young wine it is drinking well but lay it down for a few more years and it will be exceptional.
A Super Tuscan in the making.
