GRAPE VARIETIES: Trasimeno Gamay


ORGANOLEPTIC CHARACTERISTICS: Bright and intense ruby red, it takes on garnet hues during the refinement in the bottle. The nose releases floral aromas of rose and myrtle berry, the purest and most original expression of Gamay Perugino. Through the refinement in the bottle, the aromas are increasingly complex and intriguing and also reminiscent of wild fennel and hints of Mediterranean herbs. The taste has a sweet and inviting entry, soft, structured, with a gentle and velvety tannin.

PRODUCER'S ADVICE: A wine to listen to while it tells the stories and the magic of our places. A wine to accompany traditional land dishes and share the time of life.


GRAPE VARIETIES: Trasimeno Gamay

VINEYARD: from the Tenuta di Caiolo vineyard. Plant layout: traditional (3×1). Training system: spurred cordon. Average age of the vines: advanced.

PRODUCTION PER HECTARE: Grapes: 40/45 quintals/HA. Wine: 25 hl/HA.

VINIFICATION: In the vineyard, the bunches undergo thinning during the veraison phase in order to preserve the best bunches. At the time of the harvest, a rigorous manual selection allows for the vinification of the even higher quality bunches, which will be destemmed and softly pressed.
The must, transferred to small stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature, undergoes fermentation in 10-12 days, to continue maceration for another 20 days. It completes the malolactic fermentation in steel before being transferred to large French oak barrels, where it rests for 12-14 months. At the end of the aging in wood, it rests for a few months in a steel tank and will then be prepared for bottling.

BOTTLING: Starting from August, 24 months after the harvest.

AGING: 24 months in large barrels, as per tradition, and 10-12 months in the bottle.
