"Torre di Ceparano" has depth and real breeding. The flavours can be characterized as raspberry, violets, tobacco and vanilla. The palate reveals strong tannins reinforced by the ageing in casks of mainly French and some American oak.
Made from specially selected, separately vinified clones, this wine is enhanced by the cooler northeast exposure of this particular vineyard. It is then aged for 1 year in 1 to 3 year-old French oak barrels.
5-10% Cabernet Sauvignon (maximum 5%)
Ancellotta (maximum 2-3%)
FERMENTATION: in medium-sized stainless steel tanks with 15-21 days of skin contact.
AGING: in 60 gallon French oak barrels (10% of which are new) plus a small percentage of American oak.
