Second ten-days of September
Vinification: fementation in stainless steel vats for 7-8 days at a
temperature of 28-30 °C, followed by the malolactic fermentation.
Ageing: a short stay in steel precedes bottling, which is carried out in the spring following the harvest. The wine is released after a few months of ageing in the bottle.
A clear, ruby-red wine with violet highlights. Its vinous bouquet is fruity, very intense and rather attractive and persistent. Nicely dry, well-balanced and velvety, it has a light almondy aftertaste.
A fine match for hot starters, pasta, vegetables and not overly-elaborate meat dishes.
