  • Tasting Note: Made only in the best years, this Reserve is made from a careful selection of the best grapes from the San Sisto vineyard and is the result of an expert wine making and barrique ageing process. An extremely long lasting wine displaying its characteristic best after a few years in the bottle. Intense yellow with golden highlights, it releases a fruity bouquet, elegantly integrated with pleasant creamy sensations. Its citrus, liquorice and mineral notes and full body adapt very well to an expert use of wood, which never overwhelms but simply adds complexity. ␉
  • Vineyard: The San Sisto vineyard is 350 metres above sea level, on a total of 30 hectares of north-east facing vineyards with clean clayey soils. Every year the best grapes alone are selected to make this single vineyard wine. In colder areas and clayey soils, in fact, Verdicchio is a great grape variety producing full bodied, mineral wines which age well in wood and at length. ␉
  • Vinification: The greatest attention is paid to detail in the wine cellars. San Sisto ferments in small oak barrels, in which it remains for 10-12 months ageing. At least 12 months ageing in the bottle follows.␉␉
