Every Wine needs proper bunches selected to the right maturation.
Fermentation is made under controlled temperature, preceded by pre fermentation cold maceration through the best third millennium technologies respecting tradition. After the first racking, wine starts settling in stainless steel vats. Afterwards it starts malolactic fermentation in barrel before entering a long ageing.
The colour is ruby red with purplish reflections, the bouquet is complex: blackberry, wild cherry, cherry, black pepper, vanilla. Sagrantino grapes and ageing in barrel are clearly identifiable.
Well-balanced palate, richness of flavours, freshness and integrated tannin. Soft, long and with a nicely sweet and round finish.
Matched perfectly with red meats, game, cold cuts and aged cheese.
