Vine: International vine 100% Merlot
Place of growing: In our own vineyards
Production Hectares: Ha 4.00.00 in high hill
Harvest: Between the end of October and the beginning of November, only by hand
Wine-making: As it happens for each red grape, by inoculating selected yeasts and enzymes, by frequent pumping over and delestage, which allow a better extraction of the colour
Fermentation: Maceration on the grapes occurs at a controlled temperature of 26°C for about 8/10 days. After drawing off the lees, must is put in steel tanks for its cleaning and then in 20 hl Slavonian oak barrels, where it is kept for 8 – 10 months during which occurs the malolactic fermentation
Alcholic content:
12,80 –13,00% vol.
Total Acidity: 5,10 - 5,20 gr/lt.
Refining: It was bottled on the first days of 2005 spring and it is able to maintain in the time those features and that complexity which make of it an unmistakeable wine. It is a well balanced and long lived wine with a great constancy in quality
Features: It has a bright violet ruby red; at nose the scent of jam  is unmistakeable and then it is recognised also in mouth with a pleasant acidity and softness which make of it a stylish and well balanced wine
Service temperature & food matching: The most pleasant sensations are perceived if it is served at 14 - 16°C. This wine should be matched with autumn soups and meat but without sauces. We recommend it also with local salami and with cheese
