FEATURES
Area of production: Small, hilly area in the comune of Montalcino. The grape growers belong to the Cantina di Montalcino, near Siena
Grapes: Sangiovese 100%

Maceration on the skins takes place during fermentation and lasts approximately 15-20 days, together with frequent, gentle pumping over. Temperature control (30-32?C) during fermentation encourages good colour, the structure characteristic of Sangiovese and supple tannins.
The wine remains in Slovenian oak casks for at least two years before bottling.

TASTING NOTES
Clear, purple-red in colour, with good depth and 'legs' indicating a certain structure. Intensely perfumed on the nose, with fruit aromas including blackberries, blackcurrants and cherries a dominant theme. In the mouth, the wine is full bodied, with tremendous depth and richness, attractive fruit and well-balanced acidity.
