Made from 85-100% Sangiovese grapes and 0-15% Ciliegiolo grapes, this red is able to emphasize the characteristics of the two grape varieties, thanks to a very accurate wine-making process. Grape harvest takes place in the period between the beginning of September and the first decade of October. Then, vinification follows, extracting aromas and pigments concentrated on the outside grapes skins. Fermentation takes place in the Magliano cellar, in controlled-temperature tanks. Fermentation and maceration last about 15-20 days, then the wine is aged for 8 months in French oak barriques and tonneaux of second passage in Montepulciano cellar.
Ruby red colour tending to the garnet with years of aging. On the nose, fruity hints of cherry, blackberry, while floral and spicy scents make the background. Vanilla, cocoa and tobacco emerge slowly. Ot the palate, the wine is warm, intense and persistent, an accentuated flavour compensated by just freshness. We recommend serving it at a temperature of 16-18 °C. This wine has an estimated aging capacity of 7-8 years.
