90% Nerello Mascalese and 10% Nerello Cappuccio from young vines (8-10 years old) grown in contrada Calderara and Diciasettesalme at 720 meters above sea level, all planted to mineral-rich soil of lava, clay, and alluvial sediment. Fruit is handpicked and destemmed, followed by maceration over 20-25 days. Fermentation then takes place in stainless steel with frequent pump overs and punch downs employed to elicit maximum expression of fruit and terroir. Approximately 8000 cases produced annually.
