PRODUCT INFORMATION

Historical Data
A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and occasionally a small amount of Petit Verdot to best
represent the complex and elegant terroir found in Bolgheri. This wine has been produced since 1990 from
vineyards on alluvial soils whose composition ranges from clay-sand to clay-loam with rocky deposits known as
“scheletro”.

Vinification
The crop was handpicked into small packing cases. In the cellar, the grapes were manually selected both before and
after destemming and then softly pressed. Each single vineyard plot was fermented separately in order to obtain a
full range of wines. The fermentation took place in stainless steel tank sat temperatures between 77° and 86°
Fahrenheit (25°-30° centigrade). All the wines went immediately into new French oak barrels where they went
through a complete malolactic fermentation by the end of the year. After a year of aging, the finest lots were
selected and blended and then went back into barrel for an additional six months of aging. A year in bottle preceded
the release.

Tasting Notes
The nose shows excellent aromatic finesse and freshness with notes which recall rosemary, mint, red fruit and,
lightly, liquorice. Very balanced on the palate, savory and long, the wine is potent and subtle at the same time,
elegant and of great drinking pleasure.
