The Character

Tasting Notes Of deep ruby color, Nicole is an example of Sangiovese at its best – succulent and powerful, at the same time refined and elegant. Intriguing and complex on the nose, with a fruity component well recognizable also on the palate. The tannins are present but round and well integrated. A characteristic wine of excellent drinkability.

The Story

Our Nicole comes from a single vineyard of pure Sangiovese. In fact, the parcel, called “Cypress,” is found immediately to the left of the entrance and along the tree-covered road to the Estate. To us, this represents a “Cru” and so we vinify it separately. The “Cypress” vineyard sits along the top of the hill, with main exposure to the South. It is the first to receive the suns rays and it is the last to see the spectacular sunset across San Miniato.

Brand Story

Cosimo Maria Masini’s vineyards lie in San Miniato (Pisa) known for its exquisite white truffels in the heart of the hill country through which the Arno and Elsa rivers run. It is here that we cultivate approximately 40 hectares of grapes, olive trees, wheat, vegetables and fruit trees. Stewardship of this wonderful gift of nature is our pledge and the vision we strive to achieve. Great wines are created in the vineyard, not in the wine cellar. Our grapes are grown in harmony with climate and soil before they are pressed and fermented as naturally as possible. In the wine cellar we use natural yeasts, which means that fermentation is carried out with yeasts found naturally on the grapes. This helps to ensure that all the characteristics of the grape are present in the wine.
