Tasting Notes

Ruby red, with a typical Chianti nose, smooth, medium-bodied palate, with an attractive lingering finish.

Vinification

The grapes are destemmed and soft crushed. Fermentation take place in stainless steel at a controlled temperature of 25°C and lasts around 8-10 days. Frequent remontage occurs throughout fermentation in order to extract colour and achieve soft tannins. Malolactic fermentation is carried out. The juice left in contact with the skins for 15 days.
