The "Castagnino" was born from the desire to experiment at 360 degrees the potential of the Syrah grape variety in Cortona, declined in all its different expressions; in this case, we wanted to produce a Syrah with completely different characteristics from those of the main company wine (Il Castagno, his "older" brother) and, for this reason, the "Castagnino" does not mature in wooden barrels but only in steel and concrete tanks.
Ruby red.
Aromatic profile with notes of plum, juniper berries, floral and pleasantly herbaceous traits.
In the mouth it is tasty, fragrant and balanced, has good structure and considerable concentration, combined with lively and pleasant acidity.

Vinification After an extremely soft crushing and destemming (to leave the grapes intact) the alcoholic fermentation takes place (usually spontaneously, thanks to the native yeasts) in steel tanks at controlled temperature for about 15 days. The subsequent maceration of the skins lasts another three weeks or so. The malolactic fermentation involves only the must flower (the wine obtained from the pressing of the marc is never used for the production of our wines) and takes place spontaneously, without inoculation of bacteria.
