Summer weather was very hot and led to an early harvest, but it was positive for international vine varieties.
Cabernet Sauvignon (60%) Merlot (40%) from a vineyard planted in 2005 trained in “Alberello”, “Bush” system at a density of 6.500 vines per hectare (2,600 vines per acre). Grape production: 4000 kg/Ha.
Calcareous-clayey mixture. Exposure south-west. Altitude 250 m.
Hand-harvested in small crates choosing only the best clusters.
Soft press and destemming. The grapes are fermented separately, without controlled temperature, for 15 days the Cabernet and 20 days the Merlot, then blended after the malo-lactic fermentation and aged sur lies exclusively in stainless steel tanks for ten months, with continuous batonnages to preserve the aromas and achieve volume and softness. Bottle-ageing for at least two years before release.
Ruby red colour.
Complex elegant bouquet of carob, black fruit, plum jam, and a balsamic hint. The first sip is balanced, full-bodied with soft and well integrated tannins Freshness and sapidity linger into a long finish.
Serving temperature 16-18°C.
