Visually striking for its brilliance and brightness, the color is straw yellow with a greenish hue. The scent is very variegated and elegant; floral notes (hawthorn and magnolia) and fruity notes (grapefruit and pineapple) linked and amalgamated by hints of vanilla on which the characteristic mineral notes are grafted with aging. The taste is fragrant, full-bodied and structured, articulated in scents that refer to olfactory sensations, but well balanced with a persistent aftertaste that fades to almond notes.
A wine for immediate drinking pleasure displaying aromas of Mediterranean maquis with hints of spices, flowers and fruit. Delicate and immediate fragrances enhancing the complex, intriguing and exciting personality of Ampeleia.
Made with different Sangiovese clones with a small percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon, this is the "Chateau" wine, the maximum expression of the very best vineyards. Elegance and strength perfectly blended, a wine with top-notch bloodlines.
The wine is regularly racked and tasted during the whole barrel maturation, which may last up to 14 months. At the end of the elevage, the best lots are selected through extensive tasting, and they are assembled to create the final blend.
