Tasting Notes

Bouquet

An intense wine, with hints of macerated flowers, blueberry, raspberry, and wild berries jam. Standing in the glass it evolves every few minutes, revealing elegant notes of spices, vanilla and leather.

Flavor

Tasting reveals a bodied wine that is perfectly balanced, with a velvety tannin. It is
a persistent and harmonic wine. The berry and spice notes reflect its bouquet. It’s dry and medium warm, leaving the mouth clean and calling for the next sip.

Food Pairing

Barbequed red meats and game.

Production Notes

  • Only the best ripe bunches are harvested by hand in September. A selection of the grapes follow a drying process in the “fruttaio”; the remaining are destemmed and soft pressed.
  • Alcoholic fermentation occurs separately at 25°C in stainless steel tanks.
  • The dried grape wine ages at least 14 months in barrique while the other ages in tonneaux.
  • Adriano then creates the perfect blend of the two wines, and the bottled wine ages six more months in the cellar.
