From Montepulciano grapes cultivated in Contesa's Colle Caparrone vineyard in the region of Collecorvino. The vineyard faces southeast at 200m altitude. The grapes are typically harvested in the first 10 days of October. They are fermented in stainless steel at controlled temperatures, followed by a partial malolactic fermentation. The wine is matured for around 4 months in stainless steel.
Vibrant cerise hue, with zesty aromas of red berry and cherry fruit and fresh floral notes. The palate has juicy, bitter cherry flavours with ripe and rounded fruit, offset by crisp acidity and leading to a mouthwatering finish.
Enjoy on its own as an aperitif, or with summer salads
