Wine data sheet
Type of soil
The soil is rich in rock fragments, also containing Galestro and Alberese, a medium-density clay mixture, rich in limestone, with tufa rock schists. Calcareous soil which tends to be shallow and not very fertile. Medium-density Eocenic soil, with a sub-alkaline pH value.
13.5 % vol.
The grapes are destemmed, lightly pressed, then placed to ferment in steel vats filled up to maximum two thirds of their capacity. Fermentation occurs through selected yeasts for about 12-15 days at a temperature of 20-24°C. This is followed by maceration for 15 days at 28°C. Racking and delestage are carried out to help extract noble substances from the skin.
It ages for 12 months in large barrels and for 1 year in concrete and steel vats.
Clear ruby red colour. The bouquet is elegant with delicate balsamic, red berry, spice and aromatic herb notes. The palate is full-bodied and rich, with an elegant tannin flavour and a lingering fruity, balsamic end note.
Grilled red meats; game and lamb.
