85% Sangiovese, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon
A wine with great personality, intense ruby red in colour. The nose opens with a bouquet of red fruits, mushroom, tobacco, pepper and chocolate. Soft on the palate, its texture is lavish and well-structured, rich in well-balanced tannins, never too exuberant in alcohol and freshness.
Usually for the Sangiovese takes place during the third week of September, for the Cabernet just across the sangiovese period.
Traditional, with fermentation in stainless steel vats at a strictly controlled temperature (max 28/30° C), followed by lengthy maceration on the skins for about 20 days. Aging for 16-18 months in small French oak barrels, followed by 6 months in the bottle.
Tufaceous with presence of soil skeleton and some argillaceous schist.
