TASTING NOTES

PRODUCTION AREA: Montepulciano: Argiano and Ascianello.
GRAPE VARIETIES: Sangiovese (Prugnolo) 100%
SOIL: Mixtures of clay and fine sand with Marine Pliocene sediment.
VINE TRAINING: Guyot and straight-line spurred tying (Cordone Speronato) – 4,400 vinestocks per hectare.
Average age of vines: 20 – 25 years.
PRODUCTION PER HECTARE: 6 tons.
MICROCLIMATE: Moderate temperatures throughout the year create favourable microclimatic conditions. In addition, the proximity of Lakes Montepulciano, Chiusi and Trasimeno, and Mount Amiata, has a positive effect on the local climate.
VINIFICATION AND REFINING: After careful stalk removal and pressing, the grapes undergo a slow maceration that lasts 16 – 18 days at a controlled temperature that doesn’t exceed 28°C. During this stage, pump-overs are carried out several times a day, diminishing as fermentation winds down.
Malolactic fermentation occurs naturally during the month of December.
The wine is aged for 30 months in medium- sized Slavonian oak casks, and small French oak barrels. This is followed by a six-month period of refinement in the bottle.
ORGANOLEPTIC CHARACTERISTICS: The colour is deep garnet. The bouquet is intense, penetrating and spicy, while on the palate it is dry,
warm, and rich with developed flavours. A perfect accompaniment for red meats, game and well-seasoned cheeses. Best opened at least two hours before serving or decanted. Serving Temperature: 18° – 20° C
