Wine Description

(2012 Vintage) The rise in temperatures in August of 2011 and their return to normal levels in the final phases of the ripening of the Sangiovese grapes led to structured wines with fresh and expressive aromas. The fermentation, accordingly, aimed to conserving the pleasurable fruity notes of the musts without excessively pushing extraction, given the “generous” character and personality of the grapes. The period of skin contact lasted approximately fifteen days and was followed by an month aging period in large casks, where it had also take the malolactic fermentation for twelve months. The wine was bottled in the spring of 2013 and was then given an additional twelve month period of bottle aging before commercial release.
