Sangiovese in purity.
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 small steel tanks. After 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.
Wine of extraordinary varietal identity, balanced, intense, rich and complex with fruity notes of small red and black fruits and undergrowth, pleasantly spiced with light hints of tobacco and boisé. Full, fine and balanced taste with silky, dense and voluminous tannin. Juicy and balanced with a fresh acidity that extends into long and persistent fruity, floral and spicy notes. Deep and elegant finish.
