The Mezzo Braccio (“half an arm”) name derives from a centuries-old Florentine unit of measurement once used in rural areas for the small parcels of land divided from the better known Braccio Fiorentino (“Florentine arm”). The wine has been produced ever since the 2007 vintage.
Mezzo Braccio 2018 is straw yellow in color. Floral aromas on the nose are reminiscent of broom flowers and geraniums merging with fruity notes of apricots, pears, peaches in syrup and candied fruit that shape its complex bouquet. Its full-bodied, soft palate is sustained by distinctive mineral notes.
