Drink it now or cellar for up to 10 years. No need to decant it but best to open it half an hour before service.

Corte Medicea is a project carried out by the Piedmontese company La Bollina, managed by the talented oenologist Andrea Bernardini, who deals with finding quality plots hidden in the best Italian regions and brilliantly combines tradition and modern techniques creating wines that perfectly enhance the regional typicality and the strengths of the land.

The Corte Medicea Atos is a pure Merlot wine. The vineyards, located in San Casciano dei Bagni, in Tuscany, grow between 380 and 400 meters above sea level. The terroir is characterized by clayey soils. After the manual harvest, the grapes were transported to the cellar. It is left to macerate for four days and then ferment for 14 days. The wine is then aged for 18 months in 225 liter French oak barrels. Only 10,000 bottles of this cuvée were produced.

The color is intense, purplish, very dark. The bouquet is surprisingly rich in aromas of ripe cherry, creamy oak, vanilla, black plum, white pepper, without losing a hint of balsamic. On the palate, the wine reveals a mosaic of seductive and different flavors that only a Tuscan Merlot of this type can provide. Power is associated with finesse, fruit with elegance, velvety tannins with pleasant vivacity. Everything is perfectly balanced. The long finish is worthy of a high-class wine. It goes well with a Florentine steak, a specialty of its native region, Tuscany.
