A deep ruby red hue delights the eye while the nose reveals sublime notes of red cherries, dried Mediterranean herbs and tobacco. On the palate there is a definite sense of elegance and refinement thanks to the well-defined tannins, medium body and balancing freshness. The rich red berry and sweet spice flavours and the firm structure make this an excellent partner for red meat or fresh pasta served with a rich tomato sauce.
The grapes used for this wine come from Felsina’s vineyards in Castelnuovo Berardenga in the southeastern corner of the Chianti Classico appellation. The Sangiovese vines here grow on southwesterly-facing slopes at an altitude of 320 to 420 metres which helps to retain freshness in the grapes while achieving optimal ripeness.
Come harvest time the grapes are carefully selected and fermented in stainless steel tanks. The following spring the wine is transferred to Slavonian oak barrels where it is left to mature for 12 months. A small proportion of the wine is aged in second and third use oak barrels. The final blend is then composed and the wine is bottled and released to the market after an additional three months of ageing.
