Producer Info: 

Partners and inheritors of local land and traditions, Beatrice Lucangeli and Stefano di Laconi started to convert their estate to quality viticulture in the early 1990’s. From then they have slowly developed their 28 ha of vineyards to be an exemplary source for local varieties. Yields are controlled and all harvest is by hand. This bounty is handed on to their state of the art winery for simple, careful processing.

Tasting note:

The impressive fruity aroma of sour cherries and blackberries meets mature sensations of liquorice, underbrush, light “goudron” and spicy hints that come from wood.

Complete and pervasive, with an incredible fullness and mild tannins on a solid structure, that the generous alcoholic strength gently invigorates.

Soil Composition: clayey-calcareous

Production: 21 days of maceration and malolactic fermentation in stainless steel tanks, and aging in barriques and tonneaux for 14 months.
