Harvest Period - The Syrah grapes are hand-harvested generally in early September, and the Sangiovese in late September.

VInification - After the traditional hand-harvesting, with each grape variety kept separate, the berries macerate for 18 days. The must begins fermenting at 20°C and reaches 27°C at pressing-off; malolactic follows in stainless steel.

Maturation - Six months in once- and twice-used French-oak barrels and larger casks, followed by a minimum of 6 months’ bottle-ageing.

Winery Tasting Notes

Grape Varieties - Sangiovese, Syrah

Appears an intense ruby red. The bouquet releases fragrance of ripe fruit, with dried plum and cherry backed by hints of spice. Wellrounded and smooth on the palate, it exhibits superb depth and weight, and a delicious, full-flavoured finish.

Serving Suggestions - The wine’s richness and supple tannins make it a fine partner to roasts and grills of meat and game, as well as aged cheeses.
