We spare no cost or time for our esteemed Montepulciano. To ensure even ripening across the bunches, we meticulously remove "the shoulders" post-veraison. This meticulous attention to detail extends to our late April harvest, where we meticulously handpick at remarkably low yields of 500g per vine, striving to capture the essence of this exceptional variety.
The cold soak to enhance the dark colour and intense flavours progressed to a natural wild fermentation of about three weeks followed by a week of skin maceration. After gentle pressing the wine was transferred into French oak barriques and puncheons (30% new) to mature for 24 months on its fine lees. Bottled without fining or filtration to retain the beautiful aromas.
A true Italian Stallion! A heady nose with aromas of juicy blackberries, savoury red plums enveloped by velvety dark chocolate with a hint of cedar. A vibrant, complex powerhouse of intense ripe fruit. Seductive and elegant with a sensuous lingering finish.
