The grapes and the vineyards: In order to obtain a wine that would best represent the great potential of the vineyard Lazio, we decided to focus our attention to the Syrah variety. The treatment of individual plants, with particular reference to the training system and to a limited production, allow us to obtain grapes of great balance, in terms of sugar, as well as phenolic.
The Vinification: Immediately after harvesting and the subsequent crushing of the grapes are taken to a pre-cold maceration for 4 or 5 days at a temperature of 18-20°C. This technique brings out the best feature of the natural freshness and fragrance of the fruit. Subsequently, the fermentation continues at a temperature of 25-27°C. After the alcoholic fermentation, the wine is placed in barriques for a period of 5 months, where the malolactic fermentation occurs.
The wine: A wine with an intense colour and violet reflections, on the nose its scent is enhanced by hints of fresh fruit, cherry with spicy notes that blend with great balance and elegance to those of sweet and vanilla expressed from the wood. The taste is enveloping, silky, soft tannins, rich and persistent finish.
