Uve portate a Cesena - Sangiovese Appassimento
A journey for the senses.

The intuitions of Da Vinci always came out of acute observation. In 1502, in Cesena, among the secrets of Romagna, his curiosity was piqued by some grapes hung up to dry with an ingenious system. Today, those same grapes, identical in origin and concentration technique, are the foundation of the exceptional richness of this wine.

Bottled history:

How it is made

The Sangiovese grapes designated for drying are picked by hand into crates, around the middle of September, after careful selection and quality checks. Then the grapes are left to dry in a fruit cellar with controlled temperature and humidity, for at least sixty days. After the grapes are lightly pressed, fermentation is temperature-controlled at 25°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. Malolactic fermentation is carried out as part of the aging process, in order to make the wine rounder and softer on the palate. Then, some of the wine is put in barriques for a minumim of nine months.
