A vibrant, typically aromatic nose with red berry fruit notes and a hint of vanilla. The flavour is rounded, well-structured and balanced with sweet lingering tannins.
|Wine maker notes
|Once fully ripe the grapes from the Santa Pia vineyard in the municipal area of Montepulciano were destemmed and softly crushed. Maceration lasted 20 days during which time the wine completed alcoholic fermentation at a maximum temperature of 30°C. It was then placed in French and Hungarian oak barriques where malolactic fermentation was completed. The ageing period in barriques lasted 14 months during which the wine was racked several times. It was bottled in early spring. Alcohol : 13,5% Vol.
