Production

The Sangiovese grapes were sourced from the Colti, Chiesamonti and Pianaccio vineyards. The additional indigenous grapes (Abrusco, Pugnitello, Malvasia Nera, Ciliegiolo and Mazzese) were sourced from the Montebello, Civettino, Le Rose, La Cappella and Camponovo vineyards. Average altitide of 400m. After harvesting in the second week of October, each grape variety was fermented separately in stainless steel, followed by a 22-day maceration at 28-30 degrees C. After malolactic fermentation the wine was matured for 24 months - half in large 60-100hl Slavonian oak ovals and half in 225-500l French oak barriques. The wine was then held in bottle for a further 8 months before release.

Tasting notes

Ripe, opulent and spicy nose with complex aromas of violets, cassis, tobacco and liquorice. Full-bodied and richly flavoured - concentrated ripe plum and dried black fruit characters are enhanced by fine tannins, beautifully balanced acidity and well-integrated spicy oak. Will improve with cellaring of 5-10 years.

Food match

Roast and / or grilled meats - or a bit of game if you're that way inclined. Either way it deserves to partner something truly tasty!
