Organoleptic characteristics
 
Ruby red color tending to garnet during aging.
Intense aroma obtained with the withering of the
grapes. The aromas developed with drying and
refinement make the wine fine and extremely intense.
Vineyards

The most exposed vineyard to the
sun is chosen to produce this wine, but also the
highest one at sea level, in order to guarantee a
greater thermal shock, which is extremely important
for the health of the wine and for its organoleptic
characteristics.

Vinification

90 days after harvest the dried
grapes are vinified and fermented in the cellar for
about 21 days at a controlled temperature.
Aging: 14 months in barrique barrels (60% new -
40% used / 225 lt.), with subsequent 6 months in
