60% Sangiovese, 30% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon
Carlo Frerrini's adventure with "Madonna Nera" began three years ago and led to the birth, in 2006, of a blend of Sangiovese, Merlot and Cabernet. Bottled in a French burgonet with a long neck and sloping shoulders, "Madonna Nera" has a modern label as black as it's name, in sharp contrast with the shiny matt letters designed expressly for the brand. Given that only a limited number of bottles of "Madonna Nera" are produced each year, it is very much a niche wine, for palates in search of unique high quality wines.
Merlot middle of September, Cabernet Sauvignon beginning of October, Sangioveve middle of October.
Pressing in stainless steel recipients. Merlot 15 days, Cabernet Sauvignon and Sangiovese 18 days. The wine matures in tonneaux barrels of 5 hl, first and second stage for 14 months.
