Our interpretation of this red wine Rosso di Montepulciano is not based on making a wine which may be overshadowed by the great noble wine Nobile di Montepulciano,but it is focused on a wine with its own identity and character. Our grapes, harvested by hand, are ready for vinification at the time of their optimum phenolic maturation, thus contributing to the achievement of the expected results. Their fermentation – as is for all other wines of ours – occurs at a controlled temperature not exceeding 25°C, whereas the following separation of wine from grape skins takes place after completion of the alcoholic fermentation. The following ageing in 25-hectoliter oak barrels for a time ranging from 8 to 10 months enables the tannin to give the wine its right completeness.
