It is obtained from the blend of 95% Sangiovese and 5% 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 transferred to a tank where malolactic fermentation takes place.
It then rises in French fine-grained oak barriques “sur lies” for 16 months.
After bottling, it refines in glass before being placed on the market.
Its aroma is fine and elegant, intense and complex. It is characterised by notes of small red and black berries of the undergrowth, pleasantly spiced, with hints of tobacco and boisé notes. Fruity, spicy and complex wine. A full, fine and sapid taste, with balanced, dense, structured, voluminous and juicy tannin.
