The grapes are organically grown in Nocciano on clay soil in close proximity to the winery.  The vineyard occupies ​​15 hectares at an altitude between 200 and 250 meters above sea level. Harvest takes place during the first two weeks of October when the grapes reach optimal ripeness. At the winery, grapes are de-stemmed and then macerated for 7-10 days at controlled temperatures.  During alcoholic fermentation and maceration, periodic ‘pumping over’ of the must takes place to extract tannin and flavour present in the skins. The wine is then separated from the skins, followed by a soft pressing and stored in stainless steel tanks where both the alcoholic fermentation and subsequent malolactic fermentation will be completed.  Once optimal softening of the tannins is reached, the wine is stabilized, filtered and bottled. All practices conducted at the winery adhere organic wine production regulations.
Taste: Dry, medium-bodied with fine yet grippy integrated tannins and elevated acid. The red fruits are tart and ripe showing notes of sour cherry, cranberry and red currant. There is a dried, dusty earth quality to the wine with dried leather and hay.
Cellaring Potential: drink now or cellar for 2-5 years
Food Matching: A great pizza party wine, or pair with barbecued beef brisket, roasted winter vegetables or aged cheeses.
