Vinification and aging: After the process of destemming the grapes are macerated for approximately 10 days in stainless steel tanks. During this phase, the wine completes alcoholic fermentation at a temperature of 25° C to fully bring out varietal character and conserve fruity and floral notes. After racking the wine completes malolactic fermentation and it is aged for approximately six months at the I Colli estate prior to bottling.

Tasting notes: Ruby-red in color, the wine is very fresh and pleasantly rounded. An elegant bouquet with intense fresh fruit aromas and floral hints. Brings to mind cherries, strawberries, pink grapefruit and violets. Well-structured, soft and harmonious. It is meant to be drunk young in order to appreciate its freshness and its bouquet.
