Soil: Clay/silt, with good skeletal structure, high in organic substances, with a good nitrogen-carbon ratio. High in active limestone, which makes it ideal for the quality of the wines.
Cultivation of the vineyard: The vines are cultivated using biodynamic techniques, using only copper, sulphur and biodynamic preparations for defence against disease. We work to increase the humus through green manure and biodynamic soil preparations. No synthetic chemical products are used.
Harvest: First half of September.
Grape variety: Sagrantino 100%
Vinification: The grapes are harvested early to enhance freshness and have a low pH, then destemmed and pressed, only the free-run must without skin contact is used. Fermentation takes place in several micro-fermentations divided by the various harvests, which are then assembled for refinement in steel. It remains on the lees for three months. The wine is then clarified by racking and oxygenation and bottled without filtration or addition of sulphur dioxide.
Bottle ageing: 3 months. Marketed in 1 litre bottles.
Tasting: Soft or intense pink colour depending on the vintage, with orange reflections. Fine, elegant aromas with hints of strawberry, citrus and exotic fruits. On the palate, soft, savoury, with good minerality, well-balanced and very drinkable.
Pairing suggestions: Wine for elaborate gastronomic pairings. Also excellent as an aperitif.
Serving temperature: 16° - 18°C.
