Vineyards: Grapes come from vineyards in the comune of Aprilia, part of the comunes of Cisterna and Latina, and the province of Rome.
Grape Varieties: Syrah 100%.
Winemaking Technique: Grapes are picked by hand, pressed and de-stemmed before they macerate on the skins for 7 - 8 days at about 25° C. The must from the first-pressing ferments in stainless steel vats, then ages in barrels of Slavonian oak. After bottling, the wine continues to age for a further 5 - 6 months before going on sale.
Advice from the winemaker: A wine with ageing potential. Allow to breathe before ser ving by carefully decanting into a carafe. Serve at 18° C.
Foodpairing: A perfect accompaniment for savoury pasta dishes, such as pappardelle in hare sauce, for roast or barbecued meats, and for mature cheeses.
