Prasio

In our territory, international varieties have the highest expression and blending cabernet sauvignon and 50% merlot has been a rewarding choice over the years. In August, when the sun of Val di Cornia rouses the song of cicadas and the temperatures are very high even at night, the merlot is harvested in the early morning hours and will create 50% of this wine. Careful selection in the vineyard in small bunches (about 500 gr. per plant) gives us a guarantee of the highest quality. The operation is repeated at the beginning of September with the cabernet. The result is a full-bodied but elegant wine, complex due to its tertiary flavors resulting from the soil rich in clay and minerals.

PRODUCTION METHOD:
Manual harvest of the grapes, steeping in vitrified cement tanks at a temperature of 24° where it remains for about 21 days, 60% aged in cement tanks for 12 months, 40% vitrified in French oak barrels and refined for 2 years in the bottle.

TASTING NOTES:
Intense ruby red hue; to the nose, myrtle and eucalyptus scents emerge along with blueberry and black currant berries, showing an evolution of dark chocolate and a hint of leather and spices. The taste is warm and soft, with good structure, velvety tannins and a long finish.
