Management of Vines: Traditional, vertical shoot position with 5 wires, 2 moveables.

Harvest: By hand. The grapes were carefully transported to the winery in small containers

Analysis: Alcohol 13% vol.

Vinification: The grapes were handpicked during the final 2 weeks of April and carefully transported to the winery. The grapes were destemmed, lightly crushed and deposited in stainless steel tanks, where they underwent a 3-day pre-fermentation cold soak. The must was then inoculated with the selected yeasts and allowed to ferment at 24 26 degrees C (75 70 degrees F) with regular pumpovers that ranged from 1.5 times the volume in the beginning and ending at half volume. The sangiovese has been fermented using carbonic maceration. Upon completion of the alcoholic fermentation, the wine remained on its skins for another week to develop additional structure and character. The wine was then separated from the skins; the skins were pressed and the press wine was reserved separately. The finished wine was cold stabilized, filtered, and bottled.

Tasting Note: Bright garnet-ruby red in color with a violet rim, this wine offers and expression of damp underbrush, subtle notes of leather, and beguiling fruit aromas of cherries, blackberries, and wild strawberries with a bit of bread crust and spice as seasoning. Elegantly proportioned on the palate, this wine is particularly lively, juicy, and fresh. Fine, energetic tannins end energy to the structure and enhance the spicy finish that ends on wild fruits and aromatic herbs.

Best Enjoyed: Within 4 years

Winemaker: Jose Pablo Martin
