The Sangiovese grapes, mainly used for this red wine, are harvested on high altitude plots in the southern Maremma. A small amount of Cabernet Sauvignon is added to give a little more colour and structure. After an intense maceration of about 10 days, the wine matures for a further 4 months in large Slavonian oak barrels.
The colour is quite intense and the aromas reveal a certain spiciness. The wine also contains aromas of red fruits and the short maturation in oak barrels is discreetly noticeable. This wine is the ideal companion for pasta dishes with game stew or wild mushrooms, or simply with a good piece of red meat.
