Maurizio Fuselli, selection of Petit Verdot from the vines planted by Maurizio Fuselli in 1996, a wine born from the personal desire to tame a vine so impetuous and stubborn.

Vinification and Aging:
Harvesting is done by hand in small crates, the bunches are selected first in the vineyard then on the sorting table in the cellar, then destemming and soft crushing.
Alcoholic fermentation takes place in new French oak barrels at a controlled temperature of 24-26 ° C for a week, followed by maceration for a total of about 15-20 days.
The malolactic fermentation takes place in new French oak barrels during the refinement, which takes place in the barrel room at a controlled temperature and humidity for a period of about 18 months.
At the end of the refinement the wine is bottled, where it rests for another 12 months before being introduced on the market.

Tasting Notes:
The color is a deep ruby red with violet hues.
On the nose, intense and broad, rich blacks ripe fruit, floral notes of rose and violet, it follows a spiciness of aging such as cocoa and tobacco.
In the mouth it is powerful, very wide and soft texture, accompanied by an extraordinarily silky tannin presence, creating overall a fine and elegant wine. The finish is long and persistent with fruity notes of blackberry and black cherry.
