Wine maker notes
Made from 100% Sangiovese Grosso grapes harvested from the Altesino, Montosoli and Velona vineyards in the first 3 weeks of October. After 25 days of maceration, the wine is transferred to large Slovenian barrels where it remains for 3 1/2 years prior to bottling. The ruby red color of this wine tends toward garnet with age. The bouquet displays ample aromas of violet and vanilla. Rich and velvety on the palate with balanced fruit, acidity, and tannin.
