Features & Pairings suggestions

Vinification

Vinification

The grapes are harvested by hand, then the fermentation takes place in stainless steel vats, at controlled temperature to save primary aromas; after 8-10 days all the sugars are converted into alcohol. To extract the color and the aromas, the peels that raise to the surface are moist with the must/wine. The maceration of the peels on the wine continues for 15-20 days, then the free run wine is separed from the marc, which is pressed. Follows the malolactic fermentation on fine lees for 20 days, to make the wine softer on the palate.

Ageing

Ageing

The wine ages in small oak barrels, in barrique (225lt) and tonneau (500lt), for 18 months. During this period the aromatic profile is defined and the wine acquires softness by polymerization of the polyphenols. Follows the refinement in the bottle for at least 6 months, before being released for consumption.

Complex, intense and persistent bouquet.Notes of black berries, balsamic aromas and spices, in particular coffee and chocolate.

Gustatory Analysis

Gustatory Analysis

Great structure, complex, and very persistent. High content in polyphenols, due to the thickness of the skins and the reduced size of the berries of these grape varieties. Over time, the evolution of polyphenols leads to roundness and body such as to induce to perceive sweetness, although there are no residual sugars. Notes of black berries and spices such as toasted coffee and chocolate.
