Obtained from closely selected 100% Sagrantino grape.
A dense, bright colour. A particularly rich fruity taste which recalls hints of blackcurrant conserve, liquorice and wild aromatic herbs. Well structured, enveloping and long lasting. It combines perfectly with beef dishes.
VINIFICATION:After crushing and de-stemming the grape skins are macerated for 25 days with 3 pump-overs each day. Successively the wine is refined for a total of 36 months of which 18 months are in Barriques and 12 into the bottles.
TERROIR: It is a silt-clay soil moderately calcareous, fresh and deep with the vines exposed to the south-east and a plantation density of 3’700 plants per hectare.
