Manual selection of the grapes harvested towards the end of October in a 40 year old vineyard in Colonnella and Controguerra with optimal exposure and low yield.
The wine is fermented in stainless steel tanks thermo-conditioned and after the malolactic fermentation it matures in old french barriques for 18 months and then ages in bottle for at least 12 months.
A big and mature red. The nose is intense with a spicy bouquet of roasted dried fruit and chocolate. On the palate it is mouthfilling with aroma of dark fruit supported with hints of licorice, chocolate and tobacco. Well-balanced with supple tannins and a long finish.
It expresses perfectly its personality with red meat and game, blue cheese and seasoned salami.
Alcohol (ABV): 14.5%
