The Merlot and Montepulciano grapes are harvested and vinified separately; assemblage – taking full account of the typical features and qualities of the two varieties – does not take place until a later stage in the process. The transformation from grape to wine involves alcoholic maceration for 8-9 days, at a temperature of 22-24°C, in order to extract the colour and the varietal aromas of the grape. When the maceration process is complete, the skins are removed and the wine is cleaned and cellared in steel vats. The two wines are then blended, before undergoing cold stabilisation and a final filtering prior to bottling.
A red wine with ruby tinges. Young texture, pleasant on the palate, with an appealingly-fresh aroma.
