This is a red wine, with a ruby-red color and purplish-blue reflections. It is produced in a hilly area at the foot of the Lombard Prealps, where the slope of the clayey-limy ground can reach up to 25%. A natural amphitheater sheltered from the northern winds creates a particular microclimate, oriented to the south-east and thus allowing for excellent sun exposure even during winter days.
The ageing process is carried out in steel tanks with some wood ageing in oak casks with volumes ranging from 50 to 170 hectoliters.
This wine has an average alcohol content of 13% and is particularly suitable for accompanying any kind of meat, cold cuts and cheeses.
It is to be served at a temperature of 18-20 degrees Celsius.
This wine is made up of a selective blend of four different species of grape:
Barbera 30%: lends body and allows for the ageing process to occur Marzemino 30%: for a deep, persistent and vibrant color Sangiovese 30%: creates an unmistakable bouquet that is rich and delicate
Schiava Gentile 10%: an important native grape species which renders the wine smooth and lends a particular freshness
