Winemaker's Notes

Sangiovese 60%, Cabernet Sauvignon 20%, Merlot 20%

Rosso dell'Umbria IGT of the Tenuta di Corbara is a blend of three types of grapes. The vineyards are located at various altitudes and exposures. The consistency of the soil varies from medium to loose (medium clayey soil and sand). The vineyards are carefully monitored during the phenological phase with an eye to achieving high - quality grapes. When - ripe, each vineyard and each variety are separately harvested. Vinification and maceration take place in steel containers for around 12 – 15 days at controlled temperatures. Each variety and each vineyard are separately vinified. Malolactic fermentation follows the initial fermentation. The wine is subsequently transferred to small oak casks, French "barriques", while a small percentage is put into Slavonian oak casks, where it matures for about 3-5 months. The wine is then bottle-aged for around 2-3 months before being put on the market.
