Production

Predominantly Sangiovese with 10% Petit Verdot, all from vines cultivated on gently sloping vineyards just 20km from the coast. Fermentation takes place at a controlled temperature of 26° C with maceration of the skins for 15 days. Malolactic fermentation immediately follows alcoholic fermentation, and the wine is refined in stainless steel for 8 months.

Food match

Pair with roast pork and rich vegetable pasta dishes.
