This wine is the result of a business zonation. The slightly withered bunches in the plant come from a vineyard of about two hectares on which a severe harvest sorting is carried out. The grapes are de-stemmed before being inoculated with selected yeasts. Alcoholic fermentation is carried out at a temperature between 23 and 28 ° C. Numerous delestages and pumping over are carried out to encourage the positive extraction of tannins and color.
After racking off, the wine is left to mature in wood. After bottling, the wine ages for 2-3 months before being marketed.
This wine is impenetrable ruby red color in the glass with great concentration and consistency.
It will celebrate a voluptuous union with a splendid podolica loin lavishly sprinkled with new Nocellara oil, freshly ground black pepper and coarse salt grains from Marsala.
