A Bolgheri, our Merlot in purity expresses intensity and generosity. The deep and impenetrable colour creates an intriguing expectation expressed by the ripe dark fruit together with the rich, enveloping and full palate.
Black is the colour of the space which is infinite like the Merlot of Campo al Signore.

Alcoholic Fermentation and Maceration: The destemmed grapes are not pressed in order to respect the integrity of the skins. During the fermentation, the “punch-down” process is frequently carried out to facilitate the extraction of aromas, colour and tannins from the grape marcs. Once the maceration is done, after 8 to 12 days, we draw off the wine.
Malolactic fermentation and aging: After being drawn off, the wine is decanted and prepared for the malolactic fermentation which lasts about 10 days and takes place at a temperature of 20°C. The “Rosso Bolgheri DOC is aged in 500-litre oak barrels; before release, it spends 6 months in the bottle.
