This wine, produced from Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grapes, is harvested manually in crates and further selected once the grapes have arrived in the cellar. The vinification of the grapes takes place separately in cement tanks at a controlled temperature of about 25°C. The maceration has an average duration of 20 days during which the alcoholic fermentation is completed. Daily rimontaggio (pumping must over the grape pomace) and manual follatura (punching-down operations which break up the ‘cap’ of pomace) are performed.
