Winemaker's Notes

It is made up mostly from Sangiovese grapes cultivated in "Muraccio", an area of the estate at the foot of the hills, protected on the southern part by the mediterranean scrub. The maceration and the fermentation take place in steel tanks. under controlled temperature. The wine stays then in oak barrels for 10 months and for another 4 months in the bottles.

The grapes: Sangiovese 80%, Cabernet 10%, Merlot10%

Characteristics:
Color: ruby-red with a little touch of garnet.
Aroma: is intense and reminds of violet. rose and fine jam of little red fruits. In your mouth it is fresh and vivid as a consequence of the delicate balance teween tannin, acidity and alcohol. It is a pleasant wine; it fills your mouth but leaves it dry, reflecting in this way the relation between faste and aroma.
