  • Vineyards Soil: Area characterized by sediments of marine origin with coarse well-rounded pebbles, light brown in color, immersed in a sandy matrix, yellowish, sometimes brown reddish in color.. The vineyard planted in 2009, uses a mixed viticultural system in which the spurred cordon and the “Banfi” alberello are alternated. Because of the variability of the terrain this system allows us to choose the most suitable form with the best grapes during that growing season.
  • Winemaking Fermentation in temperature controlled Horizon hybrid steel and French oak tanks. Aging, in French oak casks for 30 months.
  • Tasting Notes Bouquet: Intense ruby red color, its bouquet is elegant and refined. The complexity of the aromas is revealed in the ripe fruity notes of red plums and white peaches. Taste: Full bodied, vibrant and taut on the palate, with considerable acidity, it has soft, well-honed tannins and a balanced finish which lingers on the palate.
  • Food Pairing Excellent with rich and flavorful dishes. It is also beautiful on its own as a meditation wine.
