Every Wine needs proper bunches selected to the right maturation
For Benozzo® we select manually the 20% of grapes coming from our vineyards.
Fermentation is made under controlled temperature (20-22°C), preceded by pre fermentation cold maceration through the best third millenium technologies respecting tradition. After the first racking, wine starts settling in stainless steel vats. Afterwards it starts malolactic fermentation in barrel and it is aged in stainless steel vat with the help of a modern system of micro-oxygenation.
Intense ruby red with purplish reflections, solid.
The bouquet is fruity, mostly with smell of blackberry, great spicy hints of vanilla and black pepper; the balsamic note denotes the use of the drying process.
