COLOUR Deep, intense ruby red.
AROMA Cherries and Marasca cherries with elegant balsamic and spicy notes.
FLAVOUR Full and enveloping, with the charming elegance on the palate that is typical of
“thoroughbred” Sangiovese.

The grapes are vinified in small containers in order to encourage maximun
extraction of skin components. Fermentation is carried out with natural yeasts, in
full respect of the terroir, the wine rests on the skin for a least 18-20 days, during
which time it undergoes punching down and brief pumping over are carried out.
MATURATION
The wine is transferred to small French wood containers, where it undergoes
malolactic fermentation and remains for a least 3 months. During this period the
wine is racked a few times to make it clearer and prepare it for bottling.
AGEING
At least 6 months in bottle.

Intense and thick ruby red colour. Complex on the nose, reminiscent of fruits
of the forest jam, sweet spices, thyme and cocoa. Full-bodied. Excellent balance
between alcohols and polyalcohols, acids and tannins, with a persistent finish
and a pleasant sweet, fresh and fruity follow-through. It goes well with mature
cheeses, red meat and game.
