95% Sangiovese and 5% Canaioloa. Grapes were grown in the ancient Selvapiana estate in the Chianti Rufina area of Tuscany.
Fermentation took place partly in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks and partly in cement tanks, at a temperature of 28-30ºC. Maceration lasted 15 days with daily pumping over. Aged for 12 months with 10% in stainless steel, 65% in French oak casks and 25% in barriques. Then blended in tank and bottled.
Bright ruby red in colour, with perfumes of ripe blackberry fruit, red cherry and touch of spice. On the palate it is ripe and juicy but still fine and elegant in the Selvapiana style, with a tight structure and lifted, floral finish with refreshing acidity.
