Notes from the Winemaker:

An intense ruby red in color, the wine shows intense and complex aromas of ripe red fruit, sweet spices, and dried fruit. The palate, of good body, is round with supple and velvety tannins, the finish long, sustained, and savory.

Vinification
The harvested grapes were destemmed and given a soft pressing, and the must then went into temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks. Fermentation began a day after pressing and lasted from five to seven days; the wine then macerated on its skins for an additional eight to twelve days. The fermentation temperatures of the Cabernet Sauvignon and Sangiovese, held to a maximum of 82° Fahrenheit (28° centigrade), favored the extraction of color and tannins, while the Syrah and Merlot fermented at maximum temperature of 77° Fahrenheit (25° centigrade) to help preserve aroma. After going through a complete malolactic fermentation during the months of October and November, the wine went into French, Hungarian, and American oak barrels, where it aged for twelve months. The wine was then bottled and given an additional eight months of bottle aging before commercial release.

Blend: Principally Sangiovese, with smaller percentages of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Syrah
