" Blend and vinification:

70% Morellino (sangiovese), 25% Merlot and 5% Syrah. The wine is fermented and macerated and macerated onf the skins for 10 days with frequent pumping over the cap for the best posible extraction of polyphenolic substances.

Organoleptic analysis:
COLOUR: very clear and vivid ruby red
AROMA: strong, intense and heady. Subtle and stylish with hints of morello sherries, redcurrants, ripe pineapple and a pleasant undertone of young oak.
FLAVOUR: dry, soft and warm. Spicy harmonious with excellent lenght and well-measured tannin.
AGEING: ready to drink 2 years after the harvest but can age well fro another 4-5 years.

Serving with food:
Best served with red or white meats, rabbit, truffle dishes (black Norcia truffles) and semi-mature cheeses.
