Wine Facts

Winemaker Notes
2017 harvest started quite early, in mid- September, and was finished by early October under good conditions. The wine aged for two years in French oak barrels and then was bottled where it underwent six months aging in a dark underground cellar.

Serving Hints
This wine is a perfect accompaniment for red meats, braised beef and pork, as well as an array of Italian cheeses.
