Grapes: Sangiovese 85% Cabernet Sauvignon 10% Cabernet Franc 5%
Vinification: the fermentation takes place in truncated conical tanks, the musts are macerated with extreme attention to the maintenance of the aromas, the extraction of color and the management of the sweetness and elegance of the tannins. The racking takes place only after careful and daily tastings. Once the skins have been separated from the wine, malolactic fermentation begins in barriques, to enhance the finesse and complexity of the aromas. The aging process takes place in French and Hungarian oak barrels, partly new and partly second-hand, for a total period of about 14-16 months; after an initial refinement in separate lots, these were assembled to complete the evolution in wood. The wine, mainly produced with Sangiovese grapes and a small part of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, was aged for a further 12 months in the bottle before being presented on the market.
Tasting notes: ruby red in colour, the nose is complex with notes of red fruit, strawberry and pomegranate, apricot, peaches in syrup, dried flowers, caramel and Mediterranean aromatic herbs and spicy hints of vanilla, chocolate, nutmeg, coffee. On the palate it has silky tannins, sapidity and taste-olfactory persistence with an aftertaste characterized by notes of toasted coffee and bitter cocoa.
Pairings: ideal with roasted and grilled meats, stewed red meats, aged cheeses, risotto with sausages, game
Format: 750 ml
