100% Montepulciano from two biodynamically farmed parcels, hand-harvested the latest of all of the De Fermo vines, ensuring maximum ripeness. The bunches are de-stemmed by hand and fermented in concrete. The wine is aged in large Stockinger oak barrels for 18 months then bottled without fining or filtration.
Deeply colored and opaque in the glass, the wine bursts with dark, brambly fruit, dried citrus, rose petal, and baking spices. Concentrated and palate-coating, with powerful berry fruit flavors balanced by elegant violet and lavender notes, finishing with a bolt of refreshing acidity. An impressive red wine that is never tiresome or overwhelming.
