Terre di Chieti Sangiovese IGT
Hand-harvested grapes are vinified in stainless steel tanks with a long maceration at a controlled temperature. The must is frequently pumped over for 8-15 days to intensify the aromatics and the color. The wine is then finished in stainless steel tanks.
This wine shows brilliant Sangiovese character of sour cherry and Macchia Mediterranea (Mediterranean wild herbs) with a persistent finish that is both dry and balanced.
Abundant body and firm structure make this wine an excellent pairing with pasta, red meats, game, cold cuts and seasoned cheeses
