Merlot grapes are naturally dried for 60/ 70 days, until December. Fermentation on the skins lasts for 22 days combined with fulling and manual pump over twice a day for Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Malolactic fermentation occurs in stainless steel until at a controlled temperature of 18°- 24°C. The Cabernet Sauvignon and the Merlot rest in barriques of French oak, Allier and Never, for 18 months. The Pignolo rests in American barriques for 24 months. After the blend, the aging continues in bottles for 12 months.
Ruby red with garnet reflections. Complex and spicy bouquet of coffee and chocolate with hints of vanilla mixed with the sweet cherry and blueberries. The palate denotes structure; the tannins give softness and elegance together with the aromas of dry plum and tobacco.
