Fermentation is made under controlled temperature, 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 cask before starting the long ageing in barrel and the very long ageing in glass.
Amedeo is our feather in the cap. It has a longer ageing than that of imposed by DOCG regulations, making it excellent in every sensory part.
The colour is intense, deep ruby red, with garnet reflections.
The aroma is full of smell of wild berries jam enriched by cocoa, licorice and vanilla notes. It is spicy and it has got an evolved finish.
In mouth it is smooth, rich in taste. It is fresh, sapid and with well-integrated tannin; the perception of ageing in cask is present but not invasive. Very leisurely, you can feel the pleasantness of jam.
Match with structured dishes. Game, chocolate, even alone to meditate.
