Vinification takes place in stainless steel vats. The grapes ferment in contact with the skins for 10 to 15 days. During this period pump-overs and delèstages are effected in order to extract polyphenols. The malolactic fermentation happens during the wood aging. This wine spends 18 months in 10 – 20 HL oak barrels.

Tasting notes:

Intense ruby red in colour with a fruity bouquet showing typical red berry notes and spicy tertiary aromas from the oak. Balanced and intense with both elegance and complexity. This wine can be enjoyed with all traditional Tuscan dishes.
