  • This velvety blend presents vibrant notes of wild red berries, layered with blackberry and distinct spicy nuances. The wine demonstrates harmonious balance, featuring sweet tannins, subtle mineral undertones, and a lingering hint of black pepper on the finish.

The fruit was tested from the beginning of August onwards to evaluate the acidity and sugar levels. The grapes were hand-picked when they had reached the optimum balance of these components and then kept cool. The bunches were 100% destemmed, and the juice and skins were transferred to temperature controlled stainless steel tanks for fermentation at 22°C. The skin remained in contact with the must for 12 days, extracting colour, flavour and the desired level of tannins. The Shiraz was aged in French oak barrels for one year, imparting subtle complexity, while the Cesanese was matured in stainless steel tanks to preserve the purity of fruit. The wines were carefully blended to strike the perfect balance.

A silky smooth blend delivering vibrant notes of wild red berried fruit, layered with blackberry and delicious spicy notes. Harmoniously balanced, with sweet tannins, mineral tones and a hint of black pepper on the finish.

The vineyard is located on the volcanic hills South of Rome. The vineyards were completely replanted from 1990 to 1992, at a density of 5,500 vines per hectare to limit vigour, thus concentrating the flavours in the grapes. The 25-year-old vines yield 80 quintals (8,000kg) per hectare. The vines are planted at an elevation of 300 metres above sea level and are orientated towards the southeast to maximise sunlight exposure. The linear rows of vines are cordon spur pruned, which suits the warm, dry climate. The volcanic soils are layered with granular tuffs, which are rich in mineral elements producing elegant and fresh wines with a distinctive character. This wine is a blend of Shiraz and Cesanese, the latter is considered by many to be one of Lazio's most interesting grape varieties, producing deeply coloured wines with black fruit characters and delicate earthy overtones. The hand-harvested grapes are picked at optimal ripeness.
