Product description

Vineyard: Νear the city of Orvieto in the central Italian region of Umbria at 400 meters.

Vinification: Afterasoft destemming and pressing, the must went into small, conical, stainless steel fermenters where it was given a cold three day maceration on its skinsand then fermented fora week. The fermentation took place at temperatures of 79° Fahrenheit (26° centigrade)and finished in small French oak barrels, where italso went through a complete malolactic fermentation. The barrelaging period continued for ten months,and the wine was then bottled. It was marketed onlyaftera period of bottle aging in the historic Castello della Sala cellars.

Tasting notes: A ruby red in color typical of its grape variety, the wine offers floral notes along with aromas of red currants and strawberries. The palate is elegant and of much finesse with softand silky tannins which, however, do not cover the perceptibly mineral character which assists the length and persistence of the finish and aftertaste.

Paired with: Red meat and smooth cheeses.

Served at: 16°C.

Aging potential: For 5-8 years.
