Alcohol: 13.5%

Vinification/Ageing: Grapes are hand-picked, placed in small containers to prevent excess pressure on the grapes.

After malolactic fermentation,  aged 12 months in large wooden barrels (50 hl) then 6 months in bottle. 

Description: A variegated wine with an excellent, markedly fruity structure. Ruby red, medium bodied, with good palate grip. Clay and limestone soil and the cooler climate typified by the region are perfect for Pinot Nero, giving it softness, elegance, and structure.
