Vinification: The production has been accomplished through an alternative system making use of large oak casks of 75hl and 50hl as well as the refrigeration of the grapes followed by a cold maceration lasting two days. The grapes of Sangiovese, Syrah and Merlot are hand-harvested when technological and phenolic maturity are reached. The refrigeration at 7°C and the cold maceration in large oak barrels allow to maintain the complexity of the aromatic compounds naturally present in grapes. Subsequently the temperature-controlled fermentation (28°C) takes place and it is followed by an ageing of 10 months in large wooden casks.
