Vinification and Ageing
Yeld for hectares: 9 tons/ha - 1,45 kg per plant
Harvesting Period: September
Harvestic Method: Manual

Vinification: Fruit was fermented with indigenous yeasts. The wine then went through a bladder press before ageing in cement and large untoasted oak casks. Malolactic fermentation occurred naturally. The grapes were destemmed and gently crushed then fermented in concrete tanks just with their native yeasts, after two weeks they were pressed and the wine went into large casks and concrete tanks to do the ageing.
Tasting Notes: Deep garnet red. On the nose, dried oregano aromas are entwined with dark and red cherries. Ripe cherries on the palate are balanced with grainy tannins so typical of traditional Chianti, with a vibrant, fresh acidity on the finish.
