the grapes come from the central part of the historical Vigna del Pino. After light cluster trimming and leaf thinning in July, we further selected the grapes shortly before harvest. The grapes are hand-harvested in 15 kg crates, carefully selecting the best ones.
destemming and gentle crushing of the grapes, followed by fermentation with indigenous yeasts in stainless steel vats at a controlled temperature always kept below 26 °C. 15-day maceration. During this time, the wine is punched down and pumped over several times. Malolactic fermentation takes place in the autumn following the harvest in small second-fill oak barrels.
12 months in 25 hl barrels, 6 months in stainless steel vats and additional 12 months in bottle.
ruby red colour with garnet highlights.
intense, with notes of spices, ripe berries, peculiar balsamic overtones (pine and sage) and a closing note of Seville orange.
fruity, fresh, fragrant and well-balanced. Fully reflective of the grape variety. Very elegant and balsamic, with an acidity which makes it very promising for ageing.
