Blend

90% Sangiovese, 10% authorized vines.

Vinification

After careful selection in the vineyard, the grapes un- dergo soft crushing and destalking. During fermentation, which takes place at 26 to 28 °C, the must is pumped over with plunging of the cap on a daily basis, in order to favour the extraction of the noble compounds from the skins. Maceration lasts 21 to 25 days depending on the vintage. Malolactic fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks, after which the wine continues to mature for 15 months in French oak tonneaux. After maturation, the final blend is assembled, bottled, and ages in glass a minimum of 6 months.

Sensory profile

Color: Ruby red appearence with a tendency to garnet during ag- ing over the years.
Nose: Very intense and elegant with predominant floral notes, es- pecially violets, typical of Sangiovese from Castellina in Chianti.
Flavor: It emerges immediately with tasting the excellent relation- ship between structure, tannin and freshness of taste. Good acidity that extends drinking and enhances the flavor.

Food pairings

The wine is very well suited for long aging, and accompanies perfectly red meats, especially roast venison and cas- seroles.
