Vinification and Maturation
The grapes, harvested in a perfect state of ripeness, are pressed and sent to the fermenters where the must is fermented for 10 days at a temperature of about 25-28° C. (77-82° F.). The wine matures for 12 months in 350-liter (92-gallon) tonneaux of French oak, followed by a further period of fining in the bottle.
ColourDark but brilliant ruby red.
BouquetThis wine offers the nose intense and encompassing aromas that are fragrant and rich with notes of fresh fruit, particularly cherries, wild strawberries and raspberries.
FlavourIn the mouth the wine shows a good structure that is clean, freshly fruity and with lightly sweet and spicy notes, manifested in a persistent finish.
Serving TemperatureIt should be served at about 18° C. (64° F.).
Ideal accompaniment for pastas flavoured with lightly piquant sauces, spit-roasted red meats and savory cheeses.
