Descrizione vino

This is the first wine produced in 2001 in the Bolgheri Rosso Superiore area by the Tuscany winery Campo alla Sughera. A blend of 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Cabernet Franc, 20% Merlot, and 20% Petit Verdot grapes which make the wine strong, elegant, bodied and refined. The grape harvest is manual and grapes are put in 15 kg wood boxes. The wine making process occurs in vertical which allows the use of the gravity to move the grapes, the must and the wine. After the destemming and a soft pressing, the fermentation and maceration takes place in steels tanks for 12/15 days at 30°C. Lately the wine is put in barrels for the malolactic fermentation. Finally, the aging period takes place for the 80% in new French oak barrels and the remaining 20% in second-hand barrels for at least 18 months and further 18 months in bottle.
