95% Sangiovese, 5% Sirah
13,5 % vol
Syrah grapes are picked and hung to wither for a couple of weeks while Sangiovese grapes are being picked, pressed, the stalks removed, and a small quantity of sulphur added. The must ferments in cement vats , thanks to yeasts indigenous to the grapes, without temperature control. Once the alcoholic fermentation is over, the drawing off takes place and the withered Syrah grapes are added: a new fermentation starts. When the sugars have completely developed into alcohol the skins are taken away and the wine is left to rest in its cement vat until the following year when bottling is to take place.
