It is obtained from the blend of 90% Sangiovese and 10% 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 and in egg-shaped amphoras of terracotta.
After maceration on the skins, the wine is decanted into a tank where malolactic fermentation takes place. It then rises in French fine-grained oak barriques “sur lies” for 12 months. After bottling, it refines glass before being placed on the market. This wine is fresh, fruity, floral wine with small spicy notes. Its aromas are complex, fine, structured with notes of red and black fruits combined with fresh and delicate spices. The taste is full, wide and full-bodied, with pleasant tannins. Balanced, dense and sweet with a fresh acidity. Nice juicy and fresh smoothness.
