Vinification The grapes were produced in respect of the organic certification, with biodynamic methods. Crushing and destemming, fermentation with indigenous yeasts, skin maceration at 28/30° C for ten-twelve days, with daily pumping over for 16 days, malolactic fermentation in stainless steel vats
Maturing The wine is aged for 18 months in fine-grained barriques of first or second passage. Then it is assembled in stainless steel vats and left to rest in the natural cold throughout the winter months to achieve tartaric stabilization; it is bottled in two years after the harvesting.
Bottle Ageing At least 6 months before released
Colour Deep, impenetrable, purple red
Bouquet Red berries, blackberries; spices which remind of vanilla, black peppercorns and juniper. A balmy note completes the olfactory profile of this wine
Taste Extremely elegant wine, soft and enveloping, with silky tannins, gentle and at the same time powerful. Definitely fresh, very persistent, endless.
