Six hectares of Aglianico grapes, grown in rows in a vertical-shoot position, using spurred cordon. On clayey terrain with limestone deposits, with a density of 3,500 plants per hectare.
The harvest is done by hand from end October to early November, using only a selection of the best grapes.
Pre-fermentation maceration of the grapes maintaining a cold temperature for ca. 2 days, followed by fermentation.

Brilliant ruby red with garnet reflections, fragrant perfumes of marascino cherry, cinnamon and nutmeg, vanilla and anise. The taste is full and balanced with medium tannins that confer a good aromatic persistence.
