First Vintage Bottled: 2016

Production Area: Municipalities of Offida, Ascoli Piceno
and Castel di Lama.

Grapes: Montepulciano 70%, Sangiovese 30%.

Altitude: 200-300 meters above-sea-level

Soil: Mainly clay, tending to calcareous.

Trellising System:Cordon.

Plant Density:  5.000 vine stocks per hectare.

Yield Per Hectar:  Approximately 80 quintals of grapes.

Yield per Grape-Vine: Approximately 1,6 kg of grape.

Harvest: Mid October. Hand-picked, put in small crates.

Fermentation: After destemming the grapes are conveyed to a cylindrical fermenting unit of 100 HL that favours the soft breaking of the floating cap during fermentation. This specific system provides a greater contact surface between the must and the skins, thus increasing the extraction of polyphenols. Maceration time is up to 35/40 days to achieve excellent results on the final product. After fermentation, the wine is placed in new barriques where it ages for about 16 months.

Colour: Ruby red with garnet reflections.

Bouquet: Intense and varietal, with hints of vanilla, red fruits and spicy.

Taste: Palpitating notes of redcurrant, tobacco, liquorice, cinnamon and nutmeg. Its persistent, warm and full-bodied flavour, makes it, at the same time, a decisive and harmonic wine.
