THE PRODUCER : Italo Pietrantonj
Production: At the end of January of the following year, the grapes, now very concentrated, undergo a process that is traditional and old-fashioned, given the very small amount of fruit remaining. After de-stemming and pressing, the grapes are given the traditional red-wine fermentation at controlled temperatures, which lasts a lengthy 20 – 30 days, given the high sugar content of the must. After the drawing-off, the wine goes into a hand-operated press.
Description: A sipping wine (“vino da meditazione”) of an intense, deep ruby-red, offering impressive, compelling aromas of well-ripened fruit, including wild cherry, dried plum, and fruit preserves. The palate boasts complexity and a fine balance of components, with a full body and an impressively lengthy progression and just the lightest touch of sweetness.
