Incipit is our first wine and it tells of the beginning, the beginning of everything, including our wine history.
With its ruby red color, it is smooth wine on the palate and opens up after the first impact, delivering aromas of berries, leather and spices.
It has an elegant taste that well mitigates its robust tannins, giving it a balance that makes it pleasant to be enjoyed in company.
Incipit is ideal when paired with roasted or grilled red meats, game or aged cheeses.
Blend of 60% Sangiovese 40% Gamay
The harvest is carried out manually in crates, with multiple passages through a careful selection in the field. The grapes, once de-stemmed and crushed, are sent by a peristaltic pump to steel tanks, the two vines are vinified separately. Fermentation takes place at a controlled temperature by means of refrigerating bands present on wine vessels at temperatures no higher than 30° C with double brief daily pumpings combined with delestage (1 or 2 per tank during fermentation) and racking generally takes place after about 15 days of maceration.
After the completion of the malolactic fermentation, the wines are blended and aged in French big oak cask for about 12 months, at the end of which they are transferred back to steel before bottling. Further refinement in the bottle for at least 3 months.
