TASTING NOTE

.Bright ruby-red in colour. The bouquet has good intensity with hints of cherry and wild strawberries which follow on to the finish. The wine is complex, rounded and supple with a delicious fresh fruit character.

The vineyards are situated mid-slope at 400m above sea level, in a sheltered position protected from the cold northerly winds thus benefitting from an ideal micro-climate. There is marked diurnal temperature variation, as well as distinct seasonal differences, and one of the lowest levels of rainfall in Piemonte. The soil, known as Marl of Sant’Agata, is made up of 30% sand, 55% clay and 15% limestone and is grey/light blue in colour.  The wine is named after the street Sant’Andrea in Castellania where the Vigne Marina Coppi winery is based.

The grapes were hand-harvested into 20 kilo crates. After crushing, fermentation took place in temperature-controlled (25-27°C) stainless steel tanks with maceration lasting approximately 10 days. Remontage and punching down took place, and after an intial racking, the wine underwent malolactic fermentation. The wine was aged for nine months in stainless steel before bottling, where it remained for a further three months before release.
