This pure Sangiovese comes from the «Viticciana» vineyard.

This vineyard, commissioned by our father Ugo Contini Bonacossi, was designed and built by him.

It has the characteristic of having the rows interrupted by two "giropoggio" roads, in counter-slope, which channel the rainwater and avoid the erosion of the precious earth.

The rows are embellished with rose plants chosen by him and lovingly watered in summer. Perfect exposure. The grapes are harvested by hand.

VINIFICATION: steel tanks. 7 days of alcoholic fermentation followed by another 13 days of maceration with the skins before racking.

ELEVATION: 50% new barriques and 50% used barriques for 18 months.

AGING: in the bottle for at least 8 months.

COLOR: Intense ruby ​​red

BOUQUET: Wide, elegant, persistent, fruity with spicy notes.

TASTE: Impalpable and poignant, refined but strong as he was, baroque in the scents suddenly even affected, innate elegance of Bulgarian roses, face powder, red fruits, mustard and cardamom, mint and Kentucky tobacco, in the mouth with spicy but silky tannins and sweet with a solar and luminous energy as was his very long and proud life as a noble farmer.

Alcohol content: 14%
