The grape must remains with the skins two weeks. After that, in order to extract more tannins, the solid part is separated from the liquid. The skins will be used for Grappa, the liquid is refined in stainless steel tanks and then bottled.
Clayey and heavy soil.
- Training system:
Guyot training system.
- Tasting Notes:
Garnet black color. Jammy, fruity roasted aromas of dark cherry, eucalyptus, black raspberry, and lightly smoky tea box with a lively, dry medium-to-full body and a tingling, intricate, medium-long grilled blood orange, cherry compote, vanilla soaked plums, and roasted cherries finish with chewy, earthy tannins and heavy oak. Delicious and generous cherry-plum-berry flavors and generous toasty vanilla oak are perfect for drinking now, but the excellent balance and chewy tannins will hold this together and reward the imbiber with proper cellaring.Tastings.com
- Enjoy with:
Ideal with first courses, white meats and cheeses. A great everyday wine.
