Bottled history:

How it is made

The wine is fermented in stainless steel at a controlled temperature, and then put briefly in oak for 4-6 months to add spicy vanilla notes to its natural notes of currants and raspberry, mellowing its pompous aroma.

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.

Vinification
Maceration of the skins for around 8-10 days. Fermentation at 26-28°C, with frequent pumping over and délestage.

Aging
In stainless steel at a controlled temperature. This is followed by a brief period of 4-6 months in oak barriques.

Harvest
8th-15th September

Average altitude of the vineyards
From 40 to 130m MSL.
