Vinification: Extreme vineyard management in regards to pruning, leaf management, canopy management and cutting edge techniques. The harvest is exclusively handmade with 10Kg bins. As soon as the grapes reach the cellar, they are refrigerated at 8░ for 24 hours at least: this allows to extend the pre-fermentation period in order to maximize the extraction. After the fermentation in conic casks with manual delastage, a long maceration period follows.

Aging: Aging occurs in second year French barriques for Cabernet Sauvignon, while we use second and third year barriques for the Sangiovese. The aging period changes from 14 to 18 months depending on the varieties and vintage peculiarity.

Bottle aging: 1 year

Tasting notes: Intense ruby red. Powerful and rich with spicy and balsamic notes followed by red berry fruit aromas. Fine, elegant tannins delights the palate announcing a pleasant and long aftertaste.
