Tasting Notes: Intense fragrance of dried fruits, with notes of vanilla and underlying sweet red fruits, thanks to the sand that is present in the soil. A great balance of strength and elegance, a pleasant tannin that cleansthe palate leaving a good finish of olfactory sensations.

Ageing/Vinification: The grapes are hand harvested and transported in small baskets to the winery. Once the grapes arrive they are then de-stemmed and lightly crushed to undergo alcoholic fermentation in vertical steel tanks. The maceration will take place for about 40- 45 days with several pump overs happening daily, to encourage extraction of color and tannins. After racking and malo-lactic fermentation, the wine is then placed into botti grandi (large casks) of 2,000 - 2,500 liters, where it will then mature for 18 to 24 months. After this aging the wines will then be ready to be bottled and will rest in bottle for another 12 months before being available to the market.

Vineyard: 45YO vines, about 330m to 370m above sea level, with south east exposure on soil that contains clay and limestone with layers of sand.
