From 100% Sangiovese grapes grown in our own vineyards, stretching on the hills at an altitude between 500 and 600 metres where Lodolaio, a species of falcon, hunts.
The grapes are harvested by hand when perfectly ripe and the maceration goes on for 12 – 15 days. After a first decantation, the wine ages in steel tanks for 6 months and afterwards in big oak barrels for 18 months. The wine then refines in bottle for 4 months.
Colour: deep ruby red, with light garnet-red highlights.
Bouquet: complex, ethereal with fruity notes evolving in a delicate spicy bouquet.
Taste: aristocratic, well-structured, elegantly tannic and well-balanced.
Ideal with roasted or braised red meats and game.
