Grapes

100% Sangiovese

Vineyards

The Sangiovese grapes come from 15-year-old vines. The land is located 200m above sea level and 10km from the coast in the south of the Grosseto province, in inland Maremma. Mainly clayey and stony soils, the vineyards are characterised by major temperature differences between day and night.

System

Cordon spur with 3,300 vines/hectare

Vinification

Harvesting period mid-September. Soft crushing, juice briefly macerated with the skins, fermented without the skins for 15 days at 12°C, stabilized with the cold.

Wine

Salmon pink colour, persistent and floral bouquet with hints of rose petal, on the palate a perfect balance of flavour, freshness and a fruity finish. Pairs well with all fish dishes, pasta dishes that aren’t too rich and white meats. Also great as an aperitif. Temperature: 12-14°C Alcohol content: 12.5%
