Fragrance considerations

It offers a variegated and ample presence of scents from the harvest of ripe fruits to preserves of small wild fruit berries together with a typologic identification of ripe cherries.

Flavour considerations

Dry with a good structure and an excellent alcoholic presence that renders it delicate and at the same time well balanced. The aftertaste is persistent denoting a fine harmony between fragrance and taste.

Vinification

Harvesting is done by hand and produced by using extremely delicate methods of production. The maceration process takes place in stainless-steel vats and is then periodically amalgamated so as to obtain a higher extraction of the colour and of scent. During this period that lasts about 20 days the wine terminates its alcoholic fermentation at a temperature of approximatetely 28°. The wine is subsequently in part placed in new French “barriques” (Allier and Troncasse) and the other part is placed in second-hand used “barriques” for a duration of eighteen months.

Food combination

It goes well with combinations of important traditional dishes and tasty second courses.

How to serve

Open the bottle for about 20 minutes before drinking and serve at a temperature of 18/20 °C in a wine glass.
