Description

Grape Varieties:

Graciano: 100 %.

Winemaking:

The grapes are manually harvested in our plot San Gregorio Grande, 3.7 Ha / 9 acres, planted in 1979 and 1989 (two areas) in which we make a first selection in the field in order to guarantee an optimum maturation. Alcoholic fermentation took place in 100 hectoliters french oak vats at controlled temperature between 28° and 30° C for 8 days, after a maceration of another 7 days, malolactic fermentation took place in new french oak barrels. During the ageing process, it remained in new barrels, french (90%) and hungarian (10%) oak. After 15 months, the wine remains in bottle for a year before being released to market.

Tasting Notes:

Cherry red color with purple hints. In nose, it is exotic and shows a high aromatic intensity with notes of black fruits in balance with the balsamic and spicy ones.
We must highlight its elegancy together with its powerful structure.
