Shiny ruby coat.
Spectacle of fragrant sensations that stand out from the nose. Catch with scents of crunchy red fruit that flutter between notes of currant and cassis, cherry and peach, ethereal and fluttering sensations of vetiver and damask rose, licorice, a pulsating blanket of fine and sweet spices, Mediterranean maquis, mentholated tobacco and a mineral thread.
The mouth is direct, truthful and dynamic, very balanced, with three-dimensional silk tannin and freshness that runs through the taste like a lightning bolt. Persistence like a roar, you can feel and feel like a crowd in a theatre applauding the most beautiful of performances.

No. plants per hectare 3600-5500
Harvest The entirely manual harvest began in the first ten days of September with Cabernet Franc and continued with Cabernet Sauvignon until the beginning of October. The last vineyard to be harvested was the one of Castiglioncello situated at nearly 400 m. a.s.l. The grapes arrived in the cellar intact and healthy, at temperatures ranging between 20 and 23 °C allowing spontaneous fermentation to start gradually.
Fermentation temperature 28-30 °C
Vinification Selection of grapes through a sorting table. Soft pressing and destemming of grapes in order not to break the skins of the berries. Subsequent alcoholic fermentation in stainless steel vats at a controlled temperature of around 28 ° - 30 ° C (without the addition of external yeasts). The macerations lasted about 13-15 for both Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. Pumpovers and frequent délestages have favored the aromatic extraction over the tannic one. The malolactic fermentation was carried out in stainless steel tanks and was completed by the end of November.
Ageing At the end of malolactic fermentation, the wine was transferred to French oak barriques (one third new wood and the rest, first and second passage) where it rested for 24 months of aging period which is in compliance with the production regulations. During this time the various masses have been kept separated according to the vineyard of origin. The blending occurred shortly before the preparation for bottling and subsequent refinement phase in glass before marketing.
