A complex wine, where ripe red fruits are combined with spicy, tobacco and chocolate hints, the notes of toasted and coffee are given by the long aging in wood which also softens the tannin.
After destemming and pressing the grapes as gently as possible to maintain them almost intact, alcoholic fermentation develops in steel tanks at a controlled temperature for about 10 days in which the must is cyclically stirred at variable intervals. Then, the maceration on skins takes place for about two more weeks.
Even the malolactic fermentation, which takes place immediately after the alcoholic fermentation, develops spontaneously without adding bacteria.
This phase is followed by a selection of the best wine of the vintage that will be left resting for a period ranging from 18 to 24 months in French and American oak barriques and will be then aged in bottles for 6 more months before being finally packed.
Herbaceous aromas the note of green pepper is well accentuated, secondary notes are of spices, tobacco, chocolate and ripe red fruits.
Perfect with mature cheese and cold cuts, excellent with roast meat and particularly with grilled lamb.
