"This is the estate's historic wine and is highly representative of the qualities of Carmignano. D.O.C. status was re-obtained in 1975 and D.O.C.G. in the 1990's. It is produced from Sangiovese (80%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (20%). D.O.C.G. wines are matured for over one year in tonneaux and then laid down for a further twelve months in bottles."
"Made from Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon. The soil composition is clay and schist and limestone. The harvest happens at the end of September and in early October. Vinification: Alcoholic fermentation in steel tanks, malolactic fermentation in french oak. Aging happens in barrique and tonneaux of 3.50 hl. for 15 months and in bottle for at least 10 months. Pairing suggestions include both red and white meats as well as most types of cheese." - Winery
