The wine was created after careful geological and oenological research aimed at fully bringing out the potential of this new variety in the Italian viticulture picture, Malbèc, a French grape which has found in the volcanic soils of the Maremma a new terroir of truly high potential.
Intense ruby red in color.
The nose is complex and the notes of ripe red fruit fuse, sweetly, with sensations of spices, of cloves, and of vanilla.
The wine, is balanced and supple on the palate, persistent and with a finish and aftertaste dominated first by blueberries and red fruit, which then merge with hints of dark chocolate.

Vinification The grapes were destemmed and pressed delicately as soon as they were picked and the must and skins went into stainless steel fermenting tanks. The initial phase, that of a low-temperature, pre-fermentation period of skin contact, three to four days at a temperature held between 41° and 50° Fahrenheit (5°-!0° centigrade), was aimed at extracting the aromatic and color components present in the skins of the grapes. The temperature of the must was then raised to 30° and selected yeasts inoculated; the fermentation, which was carried out at temperatures of 86° Fahrenheit (30° centigrade), was carefully managed with delicate techniques in order to extract only supple tannins and lasted approximately a week.
Aging The wine then went into 60 gallon French oak barrels where it was put through a complete malolactic fermentation and began a ten month aging period. The 2016 Vie Cave then reposed for twelve months in bottle before commercial release.
