Wine Description

(From 2013 Vintage) The different varietals were fermented separately in small steel tanks to maintain their varietal characteristics intact. The alcoholic fermentation was followed by malolactic fermentation, again in steel tanks. The wine was then aged for 10 months, partly in barrique used for Ornellaia and partly in cement tanks, to obtain the perfect balance between tannic structure and an expression of fresh fruit.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2013 Vintage) The wine appears its classic rich hue, and boasts a bouquet that isgenerously fruity and subtly spiced. The elegant, silk-smooth tannins are immediately impressive, beautifullycomplemented by a vibrant, refreshing acidity.

Blend: 50% Merlot, 30% Sangiovese, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon
