Overview

The Sangiovese fermented with inoculated yeast BM45 and wild yeast. The ferment temperatures reached and were maintained at 30°C. Once the wine finished alcoholic fermentation the free run juice was drained and the skins then lightly pressed. The wine was allowed to settle for a day before it was transferred to barrels for malic acid fermentation and barrel aging, where it spent a further 14 months. The wine was then blended, fined and bottled.
