General Information: We propose this label to express the particular characteristics of a vineyard, named I Castagni, that has shown during these last years a "superior" character. A single vineyard on 1.5 hectares which really surprised us for the personality of the deep and elegant sensations that gives us. The vines have been planted at 6,200 plants/ha and trained on the Guyot method, cultivated following natural methods (without using herbicides nor chemical tilling) and assisted by manual work of Spring pruning in order to guarantee a perfect vegetative balance. The vinification includes a long maceration in wooden barrels and the fining in barriques for 24 months. The wine is bottles without filtering and remain in our cellar at least for other 18 months.

Food Match: Ideally served with flavourful meat and game dishes.
