||20% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot, 70% Sangiovese
||Altitude: 250 m. as.l. Exposure: south-west.
|Composition of the land
||Medium-textured soil with clay and galestro.
||The grapes are carefully selected by hand and then vinified separately in small containers in order to maximise skin extraction. Fermentation is carried out without selected yeasts, in full respect of the characteristics of the territory; skin contact varies from a minimum of 18 days to a maximum of 25-28 days, depending on the variety, during which time punching down and pumping over are carried out.
||The wine is transferred to French oak barriques where it undergoes malolactic fermentation and remains for at least 18 months, during which time the wine is racked a few times to make it clearer and prepare it for bottling, which is done without subjecting the wine to any filtration or clarification processes, so as to keep all its organolectic properties intact. At least 6 months in bottle.
