Notes about product
Grapes were sourced from vineyards upwards of 60 years of age. This vintage experienced an average cold and dry winter. Spring had good rainfall and below average temperatures. A very hot summer followed which allowed for consistent grape maturation thanks to water reserves.
Spontaneous fermentation occurred for about 2 weeks in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature. Maceration followed to extract colour, and malolactic fermentation in concrete tanks. Aged for approximately 30 months in Slavonian oak barrels of varying sizes. Long aging in bottle.
On the nose, very evident notes of plum and morello cherry typical of Brunello, but also a light spiciness, with well-integrated oak and tannins. On the palate it expresses a great vivacity and energy.
