Rocche di Castiglione displays elegance, fine tannins, a persistent taste and minerality. It accurately reflects the characteristics of the soil of origin. Its tannins develop from a rugged soil, sandy and calcareous. Ruby red in color with light garnet reflections, delicate notes of spices and licorice and a desirable bouquet of red berries. Extraordinarily long finish. Aged 100% in 20-hectoliter French oak barrels for 30 months. Bottling takes place at the end of the summer, with a further year of bottle ageing before release on the market. Will develop for decades to come. 14.5% ABV.
