In cellar
The grapes are collected and carefully selected. Maceration takes place in concrete tanks for 25/30 days. The wine is then placed in steel tanks until the month of December, after which it takes a step into a large barrel and barrique of third or fourth ride for 10-12 months, allowing for the ripening of tannins. It follows an ageing in bottle for 8 months.

In Vineyard
Sangiovese 88% and Canaiolo 12%, the soil is characterized by the predominant presence of galestro and alberese stone with a small percentage of boulder and sandstone. The 2017 vintage was one of the most drought of the last decades, rains only showed up in early September helping the ripening process. To face this
abnormal weather situation, it was essential to pay particular attention to the condition of the vineyard. Thanks to the great care, precision and the many operations in vineyard, we managed to harvest healthy and excellent quality grapes.
