Winemaking Notes: The winemaking follows the modern principles of red vinification. First the grapes are selected, then they are rasped, and the skins are mixed with the must: the latter process lasts 10-15 days at a temperature of 15 degrees Celsius for the first three days and 28-30 degrees Celsius for the remainder of the time. During fermentation, wine is separated by the skins through a gentle pressing and stored in steel tanks for a successive malolactic fermentation. After six months in the steel tanks, the time necessary for the tannins to ripe, the wine is finally filtered and bottled. The wine is refined for one month in the bottle. Each phase of the vinification follows the strictest codes of organic wine production.

Tasting Notes: Fresh scent, intensely fruity with hints of mature red fruits. Soft, round, full-bodied and consistent taste. Best enjoyed with spicy salami, pasta dishes, red meats and semi-cured cheeses.
