THE PRODUCER : Italo Pietrantonj
Harvest time: Mid to late October.
Production Gentle pressing of the clusters, cryomaceration on the skins to extract fruit aromas and varietal characteristics of the Montepulciano grape, followed by static cold-settling of the must, then controlled-temperature fermentation, followed by maturation in stainless steel.
Nose: The nose exhibits lovely floral and fruit fragrances, redolent of violets and pungent underbrush.
Taste The palate is crisp, refreshing, and quite smooth, with a classic hint of almond on the finish.
