TASTING NOTES: Color: Bright ruby red color. Bouquet: Intense and characteristic bouquet, fruity with a violet fragrance. Flavor: Dry and harmonious with notes of dark chocolate and black cherries.

VINEYARD: Sourced from grapes grown in the vineyards of Chianti area, approx. 250 m above sea level.

WINEMAKING: Traditional vinification method: ripe grapes are harvested from the best vineyards and almost immediately crushed in order to minimize oxidation. The must is then fermented in large stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature of 23-24° C. When the primary fermentation is finished, the wine is stored in contact with the skins for greater extraction of color and structure for a period of 10-15 days. At the end of fermentation the wine is stored at a constant temperature in Slavonian oak casks for a minimum period of 24 months.
