VINIFICATION AND AGEING
The must obtained from grapes harvested when fully ripe is vinified in vertical fermenting devices for about 20 days at a temperature of 28° C. (82° F.), followed by malolactic fermentation. Afterward, the wine ages in 350-liter (92 gallons) French oak barrels for 12 months, followed by further fining of four months in the bottle.
colour: highly intense ruby red.
bouquet: rich and complex with up-front notes of ripe red fruit and wild berries accompanied by scents of spices and licorice.
flavour: full-bodied and encompassing, with a persistent and slightly spicy finish.
This full-bodied wine combines superbly with dishes of the Tuscan tradition: pappardelle con sugo di cinghiale (wide noodles with wild boar sauce), bistecca fiorentina (grilled steak), roast game and hard savoury cheeses
