Wine type DOCG
Harvest: Hand-harvested in early October.
Fermentation: Fruit is pressed then fermented in
stainless steel tanks for 35- 40 days during which time
full malolactic fermentation occurs.
Aging 36 months in large Slavonian oak barrels or
botte, then bottle aged an additional 12 months in
Leafy underbrush, new leather, dark
berry and chopped herb aromas waft out of the glass.
The fresh, chewy palate doles out succulent wild
cherry, ripe raspberry, white pepper and cinnamon
notes, blanketed in smooth, round tannins. A licorice
note caps off the finish. It’s already delicious but will
also offer fine drinking over the next several years.
