Winemaking The grapes are harvested only when fully matured and the vinification starts straight away when they get into the cellar. First it comes the destalking, soft pressing, follows a fermentation – which
is tumultuous and takes place at about 28°C in stainless steel tanks – then it follows the maceration.This consists in leaving the must in contact with the skins and pips – according to the tradition. After racking, the ideal conditions for a perfect malolactic fermentation are created in the cellar.
Aging The wine is kept in stainless steel tanks for 6 months to preserve its freshness and its fruity feature; a short aging in the bottle follows before being sold.
Ruby red color with garnet shades which get more evident as time goes by; delicate, heady, intense, full and lingering the nose; warm, full-bodied, complex, dry and harmonious taste.
