Intense, full and ethereal with good amplitude of nuances, on all we recognize notes of spices, vanilla cinnamon and wood.

Food Matching

Perfect with meat dishes, roasts and recipes made from beef and sheep noble cuts. Great matching with Italian traditional sausage and aged cheese such as Pecorino. Our Tip...try it accompanied with the traditional Italian beef stew.

Vinification

The vinification is done following the traditional red technique with daily mixing of the grapes skin for the first 3-4 days of maceration, and then we do a single long mixing at a controlled temperature of 25 ° C until the alcoholic fermentation is finished. This first part is then followed by a preparation of the best conditions for the starting of the malo-lactic fermentation.

Aging

When the malo-lactic fermentation is completed the wine is then aged into stainless steel tank and into 500 liters tonneau for a minimum of 36 months. When the ageing is finished, our winemaker does the selection of the cuvéé in order to obtain the best aroma.
