Grape: 100% Montepulciano, guyot-trained vineyards with low and selected yields per hectare.
Vineyards: From 6 hectares of beautiful hillside vineyards, with an average age of 10 years, extended over the sunny Bucchianico hills, in the province of Chieti. Medium calcareous clay soils at an altitude of about 280 meters above sea level. The remarkable thermal excursions determine optimal conditions to give rise to high quality grapes.
Vinification: Bunches are hand-picked. Soft pressing and traditional red vinification, followed by a 30 days maceration on the skins in inox tanks.
Ageing: The wine is refined for 18 months in small oak barrels of 5 hl, then it evolves in inox tanks before bottling.
Tasting Notes: Intense ruby red color with violet hues. Vinous bouquet accompanied by a balance of fruity and spicy notes with hints of maraschino cherry and ripe plum. Dry and slightly tannic taste.
Food Pairing: Perfect with meat, game and mature cheeses. Wine of great longevity and structure. Recommended drinking temperature 18°C.
