This name was born when the villa and the vineyards were bought, thanks to the owner's daughter. In those days, the little girl was reading a fairytale about a dreamland where everything was beautiful and good; this country was called Tiratari. When she was taken to see the new house, she immediately said: "But this is Tiratari!". From that day on, the name of the wine was decided. See the picture of us at that time
Balance is the keyword that allows us to understand the open and sunny expression of this wine. Year after year Sangiovese characterizes itself more and more in this area, while showing elegance and good drinkability, or rather a fluid taste spectrum, enlarged and balanced by the addition of a small percentage of international grapes. Beautiful is also the transparency and the ruby robe, reflected in excellent vividness of colour. The nose has a medium spectrum, but with an excellent definition of many red and black fruits, supported by a complementary and flattering spiciness, always rounded but never aggressive. But it is the palate that raises the dimension of Tiratari and here the above concept returns: balance, centered in the right qualitative expression of the taste components, good tannins but not obtrusive, freshness that gives impetus and leaves a positive impression on the palate in the finish, the alcohol is perceptible in its required quantity to maintain the strong components. These are the solid foundations that have made possible the composition of Tiratari, a wine that corresponds to its territor.

Psyco I.G.T.

Our great "SuperTuscan", where the Cabernet Sauvignon completes and integrates with its structure the elegance and finesse of Sangiovese.

Sangiovese 50%, Cabernet Sauvignon 50%
12 months in French oak barrels of Allier and 12 months in bottle.
Colour: Intense, brilliant ruby.
Aromas: intense of small red fruit, licorice, pepper, spices, tobacco
Taste: elegant, well-balanced, persistent, soft but firm tannins.
Macaroni with structured sauces, red meats, wild meats, cheeses. Chinese and Indian cuisine
This name is a dedication made by the owner of the company, a neurologist, to his profession.
For those who mainly prefer large volume and warmth, in short, a significant presence of the taste also owed to Cabernet Sauvignon, combined with the freshness of Sangiovese, which it generously diffuses, it is this interesting blend (with a majority of Sangiovese) that makes Psyco a harmonious meeting between strength and durability. A ruby tone of medium intensity with an excellent brilliance that makes the wine shine on visual observation. At the beginning, a scent of blackberry, plum and currant unfolds, which meets liquorice and pepper that announce the delicate finish with notes of spices. The taste is decisive at the entrance, unfolding with a wide and rich spectrum, then evolving along the line of freshness with a precise balance of tannins and quality, releasing warmth and fruit at the end.
