The lightly overripened grapes are harvested by hand in October. After 100-120 days of “appassimento” (drying of the grapes) the grapes are more concentrated. We press the grapes and we put the pressings into steel tanks where juice ferments with grapes skins for about 30-40 days. During fermentation, the wine and the grapes skins are mixed daily by hand with pump-over into the lap and delastage to get the maximum out of the product

About 4/5 years into small old french barrels

It has a deep garnet ruby red colour. It is intense, elegant and ample with prune, cherry in spirit and jam smells. On the palate it is dry, warm, soft, full bodied, elegant, powerful, majestic, persistent, complex with spices, coffee, cocoa, overripened fruit and balsamic flavours

Tasty dishes, roasted red meats, roasts, game, stews, mature and strong cheeses. Also excelent as after-dinner and as meditation wine. The recommended drinking temperature is between 15°-18°C
