Hillside vineyards located in the Chianti DOCG zone, Tuscany, Italy. Mixed structure and composition of soil: sand, clay, and limestone are often very rich in marine fossils. Yellow stones called “galestro” are also easily found in these soils.
Grapes are crushed and fermented at controlled temperatures to extract optimal color, soft tannins, and typical aromas. The wine is totally fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel for about 10 to 12 days to obtain character and natural soft tannins. Malolactic fermentation follows to reduce acidity and increase roundness.
Color: Ruby to deep garnet red.
Bouquet: Intense, with violets and red cherries.
