The must is fermented on the skins for 8-12 days, before being transferred to stainless-steel tanks for a further fermentation period of 8-10 days at a temperature of 25-30 °C.
Deep red, with faint purplish highlights. The nose is concentrated, with good personality, offering fruity notes of cherries and blackberries accompanied by floral hints of Parma violets. On the palate, the wine is full bodied and clean, with a pleasantly bitterish finish.
A suitable accompaniment to starters with full-flavoured sauces and legume soups. Excellent with beef, kid, lamb and hard cheeses.
