Varieties: 100% DOC Cortona Syrah
Vinifaction: After a highly selective grape process and gentle grape crushing and de-stemming the must is fermented in large French-oak vats for a period of 20-25 days. During this period, daily “remintages”, or pumping of the wine from the bottom to the top of the barrel, take place in order to facilitate the extractions of colour and aromatics from the skin. Then the wine is clarified using natural proteins and gently filtered. Finally, the elevage cycle is completed with refinement period in the bottle.
Aging: 6 Months in stainless steel tanks
Refinement in bottle: Minimum 2 Months
Color: Highly concentrated ruby red, deep, with violet hues.
Arome: Intense, complex, meaty, intriguing, rich in little red fruits, raspberry, currant, combined with red meat notes, sweet spices, black pepper, underwood closing into mineral.
Taste: Full-bodied, smooth, sweet, with compact, elegant melted, enveloping, tannins; great balance with acidity. Complex, long persistent, freshly spicy lingering finish.
In 2014 we introduced for the first time Tinia, his big brother Lucius, has won several international competition. The difference between both Syrah’s is embedded in the aging process.
