With the long maceration, we were able to build the tannin structure without the need for lengthy time in oak barrels. The wine was matured for only about 6 months in barriques- 20% new.
The wine has a deep ruby colour and concentrated palate. The nose is redolent of dark forest floor berries and brambles, which follows through onto the back palate. Rich and round tannins surround the wine, ensuring that it will age for many years. Feminine and sophisticated- like a good Italian soprano!
