Vinification and aging: After a careful and precise selection of the grape clusters, the manually harvested grapes are de-stemmed and gently pressed. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel vats where maceration lasts 16/18 days at a controlled temperature of 28/30° C. Shortly after malolactic fermentation the wine is transferred into oak barrels. The bottled wine then remains stored in the cellar for refinement prior to its release.

Tasting notes: Intense ruby red in color. An ample and complex bouquet, with distinct notes of flowers, fresh fruit and spices. The palate is vigorous and vibrant, a lovely acidic vein fused with a loto of flavor make it an ample and balanced wine. Elegant and soft tannins. The finish and aftertaste are persistent and lingering. A true and authentic expression of Sangiovese.
