Inizi 2016 Hi-Jump Red
This Hi-Jump Red showcases hints of Cocoa powder, Lavender, Anise and traces of Tobacco. The tannin is soft and approachable yet subsists enough to age and stand-alone. This wine manages to be the best of both the New and Old worlds. Harnessing a fresh and liveliness so commonly found in the New World while maintaining structure, depth and complexity that sometimes can only be found overseas. This fruit was hand sorted and fermented in open top fermenters. While most of these lots were fermented separately, the Sangiovese and Cabernet were co-fermented. The goal was to achieve a soft and deep structure while avoiding the sometimes-harsh tannin of Sangiovese. All lots were allowed to ferment native both primary and MLF. There were no additions, fining, or filtering to this wine.
