Vinification: Refermented on the Amarone grape skins with the method “Ripasso” and then 15 months in Slavonian Oak barrels of 65 hectoliters. Tasting Notes: Deep ruby red in color. Rich spicy perfumes and black pepper notes with a hint of raisins. Full body balanced taste, very intense and spicy with sweet cherry flavors.
