Wines made with Old Style Artisanal Methods
The Centesimino wine by Arcani is a harmonious red in which an excellent taste-olfactory balance reigns. A bottle that comes from an original grape variety, the Centesimino, which is grown exclusively in Emilia-Romagna, a particularly aromatic variety that is striking for its perfumes on the nose. By giving space to this grape, Ancarani confirms its commitment to enhancing the territory through criteria of biodiversity and sustainability.
Centesimino comes from the pure use of the grape of the same name, known in the Ravenna area as Sauvignon Rosso. This type is grown using the espalier method in vineyards located on hilly terrain near Oriolo dei Fichi, characterised by a clay loam subsoil. Once the grapes have been selected and brought to Arcani's winemaking facilities, they are destemmed and undergo spontaneous fermentation, thanks to the presence of indigenous yeasts, in steel containers for 15-20 days. Maturation then follows, which lasts for 3 months on the fine lees in steel, followed by a further 12 months in large cement casks.
This Centesimino red wine made by Ancarani manifests itself to the eye with a hue reminiscent of ruby red, crossed by slight garnet-coloured veins, evident in the rim. The olfactory spectrum is organised around primarily floral notes, which, minute by minute, give way to more balsamic and fruity hints. On the palate, it is full-bodied, with a mouthfeel that is striking for its freshness and delicacy, characterised by a bel tannic grip, lively and lively. It is a bottle that not only appeals to the palate of all fans of fine reds but also receives well-deserved acclaim among national critics.
