The grapes derive from the Montespinato ‘cru’ situated in the commune of Cigognola; when they have reached a perfect maturation, they are harvested entirely by hand. After the de-stemming and crushing, the must is left to macerate for 10-15 days in stainless steel tanks after which it is drawn off. After a few racking processes is left to age in large French oak ‘tonneaux’ barrels where it stays for about a year. In the autumn, 2 years after its harvest the wine is ready to be bottled. To insure its maximum integrity, before bottling only a slight filtering is carried out, assuring a good ageing.
full ruby red. Intense bouquet with hints of spices and nuances of woodland fruit jams. To the mouth it is full bodied, of great structure and persistence./span>
