Tasting notes

Deep ruby-red with violet highlights. The fine, fruity bouquet has very persistent, clear-cut overtones of blackberries and raspberries melted with overtones of plums and black cherries. The taste is pleasantly dry, and its strong almondy aftertaste brings out its fullness and velvety stuffing with slight tannins, making for a highly agreeable, fine balance.

Producer

FONTANAFREDDA SRL.

Vinification and aging

Vinification: the fermentation is carried out in stainless steel vats at a temperature of 30 - 32°C with frequent pumping over of the must to optimize the extraction of colour and tannins. Then the fermentation goes on at a controlled temperature (25-26 °C). Ageing: at the end of the malolactic fermentation (end of November), the wine stays in barriques for four months followed by a short period in stainless steel tanks before the bottling. The wine is released after short bottle ageing.
