Grapes: 100% Sangiovese
Age of vineyards: Between 35-40 years older.
Vinification: After a careful selection and harvesting of the grapes, start the alcoholic fermentation at a controlled temperature and maceration of about 20 days with indigenous yeasts, followed by malolactic fermentation.
Aging: 3,5 years in French oak cask
Bottle-aging 6 months
Color: Intense garnet red color
Bouquet Intense and powerful, rich in aromas, with fruity notes, blackberry and blueberry combined with hints of chocolate
