Careful selection of the grapes in the vineyard. Soft de-stemming and crushing. Alcoholic fermentation takes place in 80hl barrells, followed be Malolactic fermentation, after which the wine rests in barrel for a year. The wine is racked into 27hl barrels where it spends a further 12 months ageing before being bottled unfiltered.

Method & Production
This is a highly complex wine with a really elegant nose; it has hints of cassis, cherries, wild strawberries, white truffle, rose water and orange marmalade. Medium body, firm, with ripe tannins, this is a very clean and elegant wine with red fruit flavours on the palate and a long, mineral finish.
As a general rule, all wines suit best with their local cuisine and therefore we suggest Paniscia. Paniscia is a risotto made with arborio rice, borlotti beans, local red wine, lard, pork rind and local salami.
