With an intense ruby red color, this wine is
velvety with notes of ripe red fruits and hints of
leather, truffles, and licorice. This wine is full-bodied and rich with great balance.
The grapes are fermented in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperatures. The wine is left to fine in French oak barrels for 36 months.
The grapes are harvested by hand in the first
fortnight of September. The grapes are hung by
hand to dry on wires for 80 days following the local tradition of appasimento.
