Tasting Notes

Bouquet

Intense and complex, with hints of ripe cherries and dried plums. After a few minutes in the glass it reveals notes of spices and vanilla .

Flavor

Velvety on the palate with smooth fine tannins, well structured and bodied. Its freshness and
minerality perfectly balance the warmness. Elegant, harmonic and with
a long finish.

Production Notes

  • Grapes are hand harvested in the end of September, selecting the best bunches.
  • 

The 30% of the grapes are collected in small 3Kg crates and dried (appassimento) for 20 days in the “fruttaio”
  • The alcoholic fermentation occurs in stainless steel tanks for four
    weeks. The following February the wine ferments in oak barrels, adding
    the pressed dried skins from the Amarone wine.
  • The obtained wine ages into 25HL old oak barrels for two years
  • After bottling, the wine ages six additional months in the cellar
