In mid September the perfect ripeness of the grapes is reached and winemaking process starts from the vine. The withering process takes place in the vineyard by cutting the petiole of grapes but leaving them on the vine for about 15/20 days, during this period the 50% of their weight vaporizes.

The drying gives to the wines the typical notes of ripe fruits, such as plums and raisins. The hand-picked grapes are pressed and the fermentation starts. The skins are left on the must for a long period to extract flavours and the characteristic red colour.

Subsequently the wine is left in wood for about 30 days to complete the malolactic fermentation; this gives the pleasant notes of spices and vanilla.

Intense purple colour, tending to amber with ageing. Full and persistent on the nose. Full body and well-balanced on the palate, this wine has a perfect balance between soft tannins and acidity. Pleasant accompaniment to savoury first courses, roasts, game and aged cheeses.
