Vinification: the grapes, de-stemmed and crushed, are placed in concrete tanks where, following the inoculation with selected yeasts, alcoholic fermentation takes place. During this phase, numerous pumpovers and delestages are carried out to maximize the extraction of color and aromas. At the end of fermentation, the wine remains in maceration with its own skins for about 15 days, always with the aim of extracting color, polyphenols and aromas. After racking, the wine is transferred to a new tank where malolactic fermentation and subsequent refinement takes place.

Tasting Notes
In the glass the sample is limpid, ruby ​​red in color, brilliant, with a good consistency.
The nose is quite complex: floral notes reminiscent of geranium, violet and rose stand out. Followed by notes of dark berry fruit, blueberry, raspberry, morello cherry. Closes with a delicate mineral nuance.
The sip is precise, the tannin is present but not aggressive, with a pleasant freshness, reminiscent of the ancient flavors of the territory. Persistent and quite intense, its aftertaste of unripe fruit makes you want to repeat the sip. A wine that tells and is an expression of the territory.
It is recommended in combination with an appetizer of cured meats and medium-aged cheeses.
