FATTORIA DI CALAPPIANO
Produced according to the principles of organic farming at Fattoria di Calappiano, this wine is the result of continuous research into the soil and the desire to give value to native grape varieties, vinifying them purely, to demonstrate their strength and unique character. It is produced from pure Ciliegiolo grapes grown on a hilly terrain about 150 m above sea level, consisting of sandy, limestone and marl substrates, and with sandy shale rich in marine fossils. It is fermented for 15 days at controlled temperature, followed by 20 days of maceration at 28°C. It is aged in steel tanks for about 6 months on fine lees with micro-oxygenation.
Made from 100% Ciliegiolo grapes. Clear and lively ruby color. On the nose it speaks of red flowers, sweet spices, cassis and cherry. On the palate it has great freshness, a snappy and crisp sip, delicate tannin and hints of fruit, tobacco and light cocoa in the pleasant and long finish.
