It is obtained from the union between 50% Sangiovese and 50% Cabernet Sauvignon.
After a meticulous green harvest the grapes are collected in small boxes, cooled overnight and then checked on a double sorting table.
Fermentation takes place in barriques with the integral winemaking technique. After a long maceration on the skins, the wine is transferred to French fine-grained oak barriques from the best selection where malolactic fermentation takes place. It rises in barriques “sur lies” for 24 months. After bottling, it ages in glass for at least 12 months before being placed on the market.
Extraordinary identity wine, very intense and elegant. Refined, rich and complex with fruity notes of small black and red fruits combined with fresh undergrowth spices. Sweet, thick, dense, voluminous, long and balanced tannins with a fresh acidity that extends into long and intense fruity and spicy notes. Elegant and austere full-bodied wine where the fruit, spices and balsamic freshness dance in a unique and fascinating intertwining.
