Grape variety: Pure Sangiovese
Vine: Trained using the "Pugliese trellis" method.
Yield: 10,000 kg. per hectare
Vinification: In our region of Italy, Sangiovese ripens at the end of September. The grapes are harvested manually and are de-stemmed and crushed no more than one hour after harvest. The grapes and juice macerate on the skins for 8 days at a temperature of 26°C.
Aging: This wine is aged for 10 months in steel tanks and for four months in the bottle prior to release from the winery.
Sensory characteristics: Deep ruby red colour that develops garnet undertones with age. Its intense bouquet is characteristically redolent of maraschino, plums and a touch of spice. Dry, soft and appropriately tannic, it is a full-bodied and perfectly balanced wine.
