Wine Maker Notes
Maceration with the skins for 8 days in temperature-controlled stainless steel, followed by pressing and fermentation. The wine then undergoes malolactic fermentation and is then aged for 4 to 5 months in barriques followed by extended bottle aging. The “Superiore designation signifies stricter government regulations regarding production and aging requirements than Chianti.
Ideal with red-sauced pastas, roasted or grilled meats, and aged cheeses.
