Tasting Notes:
Distinctive nose of black fruits. Elegant, complex and well balanced, with a hint of cocoa in the long finish. A balanced tannic structure and good spicy aromatic tones, which espouse well the typical leather and earthy tones of the Sangiovese. Complex, profound, with a lively acidity, long in the mouth with notes of cocoa aftertaste.
Drinking Dates:
2015 to 2023
Cépagement:
Sangiovese-based blend with international varietals (Cabernet and Syrah) accounting for around one third of the wine.
Upbringing:
Manual harvest. The vinification process is directed by the oenologist Alberto Antonini who aims to create wines that reflect the terroir. The freshly picked grapes are de-stemmed then grapes are manually selected on a sorting table. Maceration and fermentation in French oak vats at a controlled temperature. Daily pumping over to extract the best from the grapes; racking with manual press at low pressure then the wine is transferred by gravity in French oak barrels for aging for at least 18 months. Once bottled, the wine takes a further refinement for at least 8 months.

Only 2400 bottles produced.

ABV:
14.5%
