Grapes: 70% Merlot, 30% Sangiovese.
Vineyard: situated in Orvieto zone and in neighbouring communes at 300 metres altitude; the vines,
planted with a density of 5.000 plants per hectare on poor, pebbly soil, are trained by the
Guyot and Cordone speronato systems, with a low yield per hectare.
Vinification: the grapes are vinified by the white wine method, with a short maceration of the skins in the

wine continues to develop until it is cold, sterile bottled.
Wine: coral pink colour tending towards pale vermilion, fresh and fragrant bouquet, soft and
balanced flavour, with fruity, cherry tones and floral hints of roses and violets.
