Winemaker's Notes

(From 2010 Vintage) Grapes: From vineyards planted to a minimum of 80% Sangiovese and a maximum of 20% of Canaiolo and other red grape varietals. Vinification: maceration of the skins in the must and fermentation at controlled low temperature. Aging: after the final blend is assembled, the wine is aged for six months or longer in oak casks. Finishing: the wine is bottle during the second year, then bottle aged in our temperature controlled cellars for 4/6 months before release.
