Country and Region:
DOC Bolgheri Superiore
Grape Varieties :
The carefully selected grapes are grown in the estate’s best vineyard at altitudes of 200 m a.s.l.
They are manually harvested in the first week of September.
The fermentation and maceration in contact with the grapes took place in concave stainless steel tanks for about 28-30 days at a controlled temperature around 28/30° C.
The wine was then transferred into 225 l French oak barrels (Allier and Troncais) where malolactic fermentation is completed and it is aged for 20 months. Afterwards the wine remains for a further fining in bottle at least 12 months before its release on the market.
