Product Description

Great structure, full and enveloping, soft ripe tannins are enhanced by an acid freshness and a good sapidity.  The long persistent aftertaste is slightly toasted on the finish.

Colour: Ruby red with garnet hues
           
Bouquet: Ample, intense and complex. The aromas of berries and light alsamic hints of mint and liquorice are well combined with nuances of the spiciness of vanilla and roasted notes given by the oak.
Taste: Great structure, full and enveloping, soft ripe tannins are enhanced by an acid freshness and a good sapidity.  The long persistent aftertaste is slightly toasted on the finish.

Alcohol content:15% vol.

Total acidity:5,8 g/l 
Production area: Alluvial terrace in the upper part of the Orcia River basin. Average height 200 m above sea level. Planted in 2006.
Weather conditions: Winter rains in the seasonal average with some snowfalls that helped compensate for the water shortage in the soil. The beginning of the spring was mild with occasional rains. June and July were hot. Light and intermittent rains during the first three weeks of August with average temperatures of 25°C. During the first week of September, the maximum temperature was 30°C. with some rainy days. The harvest started around mid-September.
Grapes: Thoroughly selected individuals of the Sangiovese variety from vineyards, at the farm, dating back to the 1940s. The selection was conducted in cooperation with the University of Florence. Small bunches are resistant to parasite attacks. Average to late ripening. Manual harvest with a rigorous selection of the best bunches in the vineyard at first and subsequently on a selection table in the cellar.
Winemaking: Fermentation on the skins for about 18-20 days, at a controlled temperature below 25° C. in 100 hl wide and shallow stainless steel tanks, designed and built in order to extract tannins and colour efficiently but delicately.
Ageing: First year in tonneaux (5 hl) French oak casks, subsequently in large oak barrels and a further 12 months in the bottle at a controlled temperature.
