The grapes were destemmed and gently crushed then fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel vats. Maceration on the skins lasted for a period of approximately 12-15 days.  The wines were blended and matured in large oak barrels and a small percentage in barriques (Hungarian and French oak). The wine was bottled in July 2020.

Made from mainly Sangiovese with a small percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon.
