A charming Chianti full of fruit and spice, juicy and

approachable, with cherries offset by an exotic perfume of

vanilla and cinnamon.


Grapes were gently crushed, pressed and then macerated

on skins for between 8-10 days.The juice was fermented at

a controlled temperature of 27-28°C with frequent and

gentle pumping over, extracting a good amount of colour

fermentation, the wine was left to undergo malolactic

fermentation. The wine was then aged in a mixture of

French and American oak barrels for 10 months.
