TASTING NOTES: The color is an intense ruby red with faintly garnet tones. The initial aromatic sensations are sweetish and vanilla-like, typical of wines matured in barriques. The clean, ethereal bouquet then highlights Sangiovese’s spicy notes. On the palate we again find very wellintegrated oak which, however, soon gives way to hints of wild berry fruit preserve and to that nuance of spices we perceived on the nose. TECHNICAL NOTES: Temperature controlled fermentation lasts for around 16 days with pumping over an open vat during the initial phase. Malolactic fermentation takes place immediately after the alcoholic fermentation. The product is fined partially in barriques and partially in oak casks.
