Following this process, the wine is racked and moved to 25 hl French oak barrels.

Viticulture:The vineyard in La Morra, with plants aged between 20 to 50 years, benefits from a south-east to south exposure, is rooted in clayey-calcareous and calcareous-siliceous soils known as Sant'Andrea Marl, and stands at an altitude of 250 meters above sea level.

Decanter Magazine

The nose is pretty, with raspberry and strawberry aromas. It's firm on the palate, spicy with tobacco tones, linear and lacking some flesh but vigorous and perky, with good acidity and length.
