Vinification & Maturation:
Vinification: Produced from Sangiovese, the grape skins and juice remain in contact for about
five hours to ensure an attractive salmon red colour, skins are then separated
from the juice. There follows a slow fermentation at low temperatures. No oak
maturation at all in order to ensure freshness and
Tasting Notes: Light pink with salmon reflexes. Excellent vivacity and brightness. On the nose
hints of fragrant and fresh fruits of cherries and strawberries. Flavours are
long and lasting and extremely balanced. Needs to be savoured chilled but not
in order to retain its buquet and complexity finish.
