It is obtained from the blend of 70% Sangiovese, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15 Merlot. The grapes are collected in small boxes, cooled overnight and then checked on a double sorting table. Fermentation takes place in small steel tanks, in opened-up barrels and in egg-shaped amphoras of terracotta.
After maceration on the skins, the wine is transferred to a tank where malolactic fermentation takes place.
It rises in French fine-grained oak barriques “sur lies” for 24 months. After bottling, it ages in glass for at least 6 months before being placed on the market. Complex on the nose, rich, elegant and persistent, with hints of red fruit, black currant, cassis, blueberry and black berry, all embellished with long spicy, fresh and sweet notes.
