Azienda Agricola Perazzeta is located in Montecucco: Tuscany’s last unexplored wine region.
The DOC is located in the southern part of the Tuscany wine region, nestled between Montalcino, home of the famous Brunello di Montalcino DOCG, and Scansano, of the eponymous Morellino di Scansano DOCG.
The vineyards are directly opposite the Brunello hillside (which explains the similarities between the two regions in their microclimate) and are planted on the slope of Mount Amiata, a prehistoric volcano.
Alfeno is a blend of 70% Sangiovese and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon; vinified in steel with a ‘ripasso’ in ‘Licurgo’ barriques. It’s round and smooth with red fruit notes and nice structure.
A fantastic food companion that punches well above its price!
