in contact with the skins for about 30 days where manual pigiage and remontage are
done frequently, throughout the day every 4-6 hours and one delestage is done per
Malolactic fermentation: French oak barriques (70% new and 30% used one year)

Tasting notes: Youthful, rich dark fruit, berry and cassis aromas meld with notable French oak spice. On the palate, Valdisanti is full-bodied with deep but reserved fruit flavors framed by rich oak. The excellent balance of fruit intensity with fine tannins
indicates a cellar worthy wine. Note: Some sediment may occur in the bottom of
the bottle as the wine is not filtered
