Method of harvesting: hand-harvesting in large crates suitable for a delicate handling of the grapes

Vinification: grapes are destemmed within the day and the stainless steel thermotanks are filled with the crushed grapes. The alcoholic and malolactic fermentation is induced with selected yeasts and bacteria and thermally controlled between 18°C and 20°C. The aging and pre-bottling in stainless steel and oak barrels follow the biological processes and the related mixing leads to the wine sensory tone.

Tasting and gastronomic notes: massive ruby color. The primary aromas include ripe fruit, blackberry and raspberry. Lasting and pervading wine in the mouth with a pleasant and aromatic finish. A food-flexible wine, ideal especially to accompany delicate first or second land-courses, not excessively tasty. Perfect for aperitifs or cold snacks such as cured meats or cheese. Alcohol content: 13 % Vol. Consumption is recommended within 48 months following the harvest, wine to be served at 16°C in glasses with middle bowl and closed rim. Store in cool and dark places.
