A light and fragrant easy to drink red wine made with the required 85% Sangiovese grapes (10% merlot and 5% other permitted grapes). It has a very vivid ruby red color with slight purplish hues. The grapes are harvested and fermented by variety separately. The fermentation takes place in steel vats at a temperature of 24-26° C and is pumped over daily. The wine is then matured in large Slovakian oak barrels for 3 months.
The aroma is fruity with hints of wild black cherry, red cherry, a delicate balsamic and a herbal finish. The taste is soft and full bodied with a long finish. This wine is best served between 16°C and 18° C in a medium-sized glass.
Ideal with pasta dishes, red meat or stews.
