Produced with the same grapes as Brunello and with a similar vinification, this wine is aged for 6 to 8 months in oak casks and refined in bottles for a minimum of 3 months before it is released. It has a fruity bouquet, rich, intense and persistent. Its great structure does not in the least diminish the freshness of this wine, which already after one year can be drunk with pleasure.
