Tasting Notes:
Distinctive nose of black fruits. Elegant, complex and well balanced, with a hint of cocoa in the long finish. A balanced tannic structure and good spicy aromatic tones, which espouse well the typical leather and earthy tones of the Sangiovese. Complex, profound, with a lively acidity, long in the mouth with notes of cocoa aftertaste.
Drinking Dates:
2015 to 2023
Sangiovese-based blend with international varietals (Cabernet and Syrah) accounting for around one third of the wine.
Manual harvest. The vinification process is directed by the oenologist Alberto Antonini who aims to create wines that reflect the terroir. The freshly picked grapes are de-stemmed then grapes are manually selected on a sorting table. Maceration and fermentation in French oak vats at a controlled temperature. Daily pumping over to extract the best from the grapes; racking with manual press at low pressure then the wine is transferred by gravity in French oak barrels for aging for at least 18 months. Once bottled, the wine takes a further refinement for at least 8 months.

Only 2400 bottles produced.
