Fermentation takes place in stainless steel and glass concrete vats. Aged for 4-6 months in Slavonian, French and American oak barrels.
“Winery notes”: A fantastic value, the wine displays sweet cherry, red plum, flowers, leather, and a hint of dusty earth. the French varietals add plushness to the palate that nicely rounds out the Sangiovese.
