Their Sangiovese wines are full-bodied, beautifully textured with hints of chocolate, vanilla, spice and fine tannins on the finish.
Grapes: 90% Selected Clones of Sangiovese Grosso and 10% of Bursona Longanesi. Clones that come from vineyards located on the hills at 380M where the soil is clay.
Viticulture: The density of the plantings is 5,500 vines per hectare, and the yield of 6,500 Kg of grapes is obtained by careful canopy management which therefore enables only the best clusters to reach maturity.
Winemaking: The grapes were harvested by hand and left to dry for 2 weeks prior to pressing. Maceration lasted 30 days at less than 30C. Aged for 24 months in Allier, Tronchet and American oak barrels of 225 and 500 litres followed by a further 6 months in bottle prior to release.
Colour: Deep ruby red.
Serve: At room temperature to accompany important dishes, roast and grilled red meats and stews.
Taste: Produced in a limited quantity, the wine is fresh and full of spicy scents on the nose with hints of cherry and menthol. On the palate, it is full-bodied with fine primary blackberry fruit and chocolate tones and a supple, lingering aftertaste.
