Fermentation and maturation: Fermentation and maceration for 25 days, with open and automatic pumpovers. Open-air drawing-off of

the wine, followed by a week’s settling, racking, and malolactic. 12 months’ maturation in oak botti. Sensory description: A brilliant purple-
edged ruby of marked depth and intensity. A crisp, emphatically varietal nose releases lively, ultra-dense aromas, exhibiting a fine balance of

succulent fruit impressions, generous floral notes, and a thread of crisp minerality. Nuances of black pepper, spice, and leather complete an

amalgam of remarkable complexity and liveliness. The palate reveals a fleshy pulpiness and layers of delicious fruit enlivened by a judicious

acidity that creates a sinewy crispness. The wine expands impressively in the mouth into an energy-laden finale, well delineated and long

lingering. Serving suggestions: a very versatile wine, great for appetizers and first courses.
