Bottled history:

How it is made

After harvesting, the grapes are vinified, and the fermentation takes place in steel vats for 12-14 days, at a controlled temperature of 28-29°C. Frequent pumping over facilitates the transfer of colours and polyphenols. The wine is aged in 225-500l French oak barrels for ten months.

Vintage 2016
was marked by consistent heat, with no excessive spikes, helping the grapes to ripen well. It saw an excellent summer, with little rain and high temperatures in July and August, and the pronounced nocturnal variations in temperature were particularly fundamental in guaranteeing the production of wines with increased aromatic profiles and excellent acidity levels.
