Cabernet Sauvignon and Cab Franc Blend. Soft pressed grapes, maceration at controlled temperature.
Ageing in medium toasted French and American oak for 12 months, then 12 months in bottle to find its
balance. Red fruits are well integrated with notes of spices and herbs. The flavor is firm, with ripe tannins
and a long finish.

Fourth Course: Tozzetti Toscani

Typical Italian Biscotti, with Hazelnuts, Walnuts, Almonds or Dark Chocolate 

*paired with “Beccacciaia” IGT Pakravan Papi-Supertuscan
The vineyard where the Beccacciaia is produced lies on a gentle slope facing the south and exposed to the sea breeze.The pruning reduces the annual growth of the plants’ buds to keep the ideal balance between the water scarcity of the soil and the quantity of the grapes produced. The wine produced is rich of tannins, scents and aromas.The very mineral soil gives notable complexity to the wine structure, which is characterized by
predominant sour cherry tones and by a balsamic hint which balances the power of the tannic structure with the alcoholic strength.
