Bottled history:

How it is made

The Sangiovese grapes designated for Riserva wine are picked by hand in the second half of September, after a careful quality check. After the grapes are lightly pressed, fermentation is temperature-controlled at 25-30°C, complete with skins. Pumping over and punching down processes are performed to help the colour to dissolve and the aromas to develop. Then racking is used to separate the skins from the wine must. After malolactic fermentation to make the wine softer and rounder on the palate, the aging continues for at least two years, partly in wood and partly in stainless steel tanks.
