Deep ruby red with garnet, bright color. The wine opens with fruity aromas, especially blueberries and blackberries, in which are well integrated spicy elements such as cloves and thyme, enriched with minerals on the finish. In the mouth it has a great structure and fine tannins. Finish is pleasantly cool.
Excellent year for the quality of the grapes. Spring was characterized by abundant rainfall which allowed a good supply of groundwater. The summer months were warm and sunny, with very few rains. The Sangiovese plant showed all its resilience by allowing the grapes to ripen properly and to have a concentration of sugars and excellent polyphenols. This vintage was rated five stars by the Consorzio del Vino Brunello.
This wine originates from the best Sangiovese grapes produced on 5.5 Ha on the estate. After the harvest the grapes go through fermentation in temperature-controlled (<32° C) steel vats for 12 days, maceration 30 days. Aged for 36 months minimum in medium Slavonian oak barrels from which the wine acquires its fragrances and that elegance which is expressed in the glass. After aging in wood, the wine is bottled and refined for a minimum 12 months then released on the market not earlier than 5 years after the harvest.
Food Pairing Notes
