Description

Temperature-controlled fermentation (at 26° C; 79° F) lasts for around 10- 14 days, with pumping over in an open vat during the initial phase. This is immediately followed by the malolactic fermentation. Maturation takes place for six months in traditional 50hl oak casks, and for a further six months in French oak barriques with various degrees of toasting.

It is recommended for barbecued meat, like sliced Chianina steak, or with game, such as pheasant stuffed with truffles: excellent with mature cheeses.
