Sangiovese Rubicone IGT has an intense red ruby color and has notes of ripe cherry and blackberry, making it very well balanced with good body.
Sourced from the hills in Romagna the end of September.
This Sangiovese is the result of 10 day fermentation at 25-26°C in 600-100 hl tanks. Once the fermentation period is over, the wine is racked, undergoes malolactic fermentation and is stored in stainless steel tanks for 3-6 months until it is bottled.
