Vinification: Selection of the grapes, destemming and with almost whole berries ferments in an untreated terracotta amphora form the Impurenta (Florence) at controlled temperature with maceration on the skins for the whole time of alcholic fermentation (12-13 days) with continuous delestages and replacements. Separation of the must from the skins, soft 1-atmosphere pressing and subsequent malolactic fermentation always in terracotta.

Tasting notes: Ruby intense with garnet reflections, perfume and large complex with spicy sharp hints of peppers and jam fruit currant and tobacco. Big aromatic persistence with large structure and strong personality 'sin by youth' thanks to minerality and sapidity even more pronounced.
