Production

Harvested at the end of September or beginning of October, grapes undergo soft pressing, fermentation in temperature-controlled stainless steel vats at 25°-28° and extraction of the noble compounds from the skins with the help of periodic pumping-over and racking. Maceration on the skins lasts between 18 and 21 days. The wine is aged for 24 months in medium-sized barrels and tonneaux. Before releasing, the wine ages in the bottle for 8 to10 months.

Tasting Notes

Red with good depth and intensity. Rim, denoting ageing, tends to terracotta in colour, then garnet. Very intense fragrances, expanded by a reducing ageing process which amplifies the hints of tobacco and lavender, typical of a prime Sangiovese. Soft and rich at the start with very good structure, generous and lingering, very persistent finish. Aromas are also fully expressed in the mouth with the presence of balanced wood exalting the aromatics of the variety.

Food Pairing

Its elevated structure makes this wine ideal for the best game dishes, aromatic and rich in flavours. Also well suited for aged cheeses.

Ageing Potential

Thanks to the complete phenolic maturation of the skins, the wine brings out the fullness and softness of the tannins as well as the suite of aromas from the moment it is released on the market and for many years to come.
