||The must obtained from grapes harvested when fully ripe is vinified in vertical fermenting devices for about 20 days at a temperature of 28 °C. (82 °F.), followed by malolactic fermentation.
||Afterward, the wine ages in 350-liter (92 gallons) French oak barrels for 12 months, followed by further fining of four months in the bottle.
||This full-bodied wine combines superbly with dishes of the Tuscan tradition: pappardelle con sugo di cinghiale (wide noodles with wild boar sauce), bistecca fiorentina (grilled steak), roast game and hard savoury cheeses.
