D.O.C.G. LA SERRA
a historical cru of La Morra. The vineyard faces southeast at an altitude of about 400 meters. The soil is tufaceous (limestone) and calcareous (clay/chalk). The esposition and soil composition endow this wine with both structure and tannins suitable for a long aging. The bouquet presents complex aromas of berry marmalade and brandied cherries, with detectable spicey notes.
The fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature of 28-30 °C. The maceration lasts 20-22 days. After racking, the wine is held at about 20°C to allow initiation of a malolactic fermentation.
The wine is then held in barriques and tonneaux for about 6-7 months before transfer to botti (capacity 2000 liters) made of Slavonian oak to age 23-24 months. At the end of this period, the wine is bottled in August and released the following March.
