This beguiling red wine is made in the traditional 'apassimento' style, with the grapes being allowed to hang on the vine and harvested late, during the first weeks of October.
A few weeks prior, the vineyard workers cut the vine stems, deliberately depriving the bunches of water. The berries partially dry, which concentrates the juice, sugars and flavours in the grape, adding to the finished wine's complexity. The grapes are then carefully hand-harvested, and follwing fermentation the wine spends 3-4 months ageing in oak barrels. The resulting wine is vibrant purple in colour, velvety in texture with flavours of ripe bitter-sweet black morello cherry, accompanied by notes of vanilla, Christmas spice and toasty mocha. Very appealing.
