Winemaking Process Grapes were picked at 25.5B by hand. The Sangiovese vineyards on Anura are north eash facing with rich Tukula Soil. Grapes are destemmed and then are chilled for cold maceration which lasts for 2 days. Fermentation takes place with natural yeasts in open top 500L barrels. Manual punch downs are done 4-5 times per day. Malolactic fermentation also takes place in barrel and then matured in French oak for 20months (3rd and 4th fill). The 2014 vintage only produced 1200 bottles.
Maturation
Tasting Comments Warm, inviting blackberry, mulberry and caramel/toffee aromas with spicy and herbal undertones with notes of tomatoe leaf. A long, elegant, lingering palate of candied cherries with roasted coffee beans, cocao and spice.
