Aged for eight months in vats (60%) and neutral American oak barriques (40%), this well structured wine presents notes of ripe red fruit on the long and smooth finish.
Wine Maker Notes
Grapes are harvested by hand. Fermentation and maceration take place in stainless steel vats at a controlled temperature for 10-12 days. The wine is refined for 8 months, 40% in second-use American oak barriques and the remainder in vat.
(80% Prugnolo Gentile/20% Merlot) Harvested from a southwest facing vineyard that is planted to rich, clay soils from the Pliocene era, the grapes were fermented and macerated for 11-12 days in steel vats.
Enjoy with pastas in red sauces, salmon and pork dishes.
