This is a young wine made from the youngest vineyard in “La Mannella” on the North side of Montalcino. The soil is clay and rocky, with excellent exposure to the sun. The vineyard trellis systems is spurred cordon, with the winemaking following the traditions for making high-quality Rosso. After careful selection of the hand-picked grapes, fermentation takes place with maceration of 20 days in stainless steel vats. The wine then spends 10 months in large Slovenian oak casks.
This wine is a perfect accompaniment for red meats and various Italian cheeses.
