Harvest

The manual harvest started with the Cabernet Franc grapes in mid-September, followed by Cabernet Sauvignon at the end of September and the Castiglioncello di Bolgheri vines at the end of October. Berries were healthy, good veraison, low sugar and good acidity.

Wine Making:

A very gentle crushing and de-stemming of the grapes was followed by fermentation in temperature controlled stainless steel vats (at 30°-31°C and only using natural yeasts). The maceration on the skins was a little longer than usual due to the vintage characteristics and lasted 11 to 15 days for both Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon with frequent pumpovers of the musts and délestages. The secondary fermentation (Malolactic fermentation) finished towards the end of November. 

Tasting Notes

Intense, concentrated and deep ruby-colored, this wine offers elegant, complex aromas of red fruit. In the mouth it is rich and dense, yet harmonious, with sweet, balanced tannins. The wine has a long finish with a depth and structure that ensure its extraordinary longevity.

Food Pairing:

Beef, Pasta and Lamb.
