Vinification and aging: fermentation of the sangiovese grapes takes place in stainless steel vats and maceration lasts circa 15 days at a controlled temperature of 28° C. Shortly after malolactic fermentation the wine is transferred into barriques for refinement at Tenuta I Colli.

Tasting notes: intense ruby red colour. An intense and fruity bouquet. More evident are the accents of mature red fruit, cherries and blackberries. Achille is very round, sweet and soft in the mouth which make is so delicious and easy to drink. The finish is characterized by a persistent flavor, a very inviting wine.
