A wine that represents the pinnacle of Fantini’s energies and research, the embodiment of our exploration and experimentation. Harvest is around 3rd decade September. The grapes, coming from a single vineyard, are hand picked and put into small 5kg cases by carefully selecting each bunch. The grapes are left to dry in temperature-controlled tanks. Grapes are then gently pressed and left to undergo a fermenting maceration in steel tanks for 6months at 25/30°. Fining in American wood for 18months.
Grape: Montepulciano d’Abruzzo
Tasting: Deep ruby red with shades of blackplum. The aromas are deep and complex: ripe fruit, raisins, blackberries, sour cherries, cinnamon with touches of vanilla and dark chocolate. The palate has a powerful rush of cocoa powder, with notes of jammy blackcurrant and hints of mocha espresso and caramel toffee. These aimlessly integrated palate of powdery tannins frame the perfect acidity, giving a long texture on the finish.
