The cold soak to enhance the dark colour and intense flavours progressed to a natural spontaneous fermentation of about three weeks followed by a week of skin maceration. After gentle pressing the wine was transferred into French oak barriques and puncheons (30% new) to mature for 24 months on its fine lees. Bottled without fining or filtration to retain the beautiful aromas.
A true Italian Stallion! A heady nose with aromas of juicy blackberries, savoury red plums enveloped by velvety dark chocolate with a hint of cedar. A vibrant, complex powerhouse of intense ripe fruit. Seductive and elegant with a sensuous lingering finish.
