This wine offers a ruby-red color, and aromas of mature red fruits, spices and violets. On the palate, it is dry, full-bodied, and well-balanced, with soft tannins.
The soil is Galestro/Alberese. The Southwest-facing grapes were hand- harvested during the first two weeks of October. There are 10 days of fermentation at controlled temperatures. Maceration is over 15 days. The wine is then aged for 15 months in Slavonian Oak barrels, and is refined in the bottle for an additional 4 months. The aging potential is approximately 10-15 years.
