2011 Vintage
Region: IGT Puglia
Grape variety: 100% Montepulciano

Vine: Trained using the "Pugliese trellis" method.

Vinification: This Montepulciano reaches the peak of ripeness in mid-October. After harvesting and a light crushing, the grapes are left to macerate on their skins and ferment at a controlled temperature for 12 days. By repeatedly breaking up the cap of skins and practicing "rack and return", the right amount of oxygen is introduced into the juice during fermentation to develop a deeper colour and aroma.

Aging: Falù ages in steel tanks for 10 months followed by an additional 4 months in the bottle prior to release from the winery.

Tasting notes: Deep ruby red colour and a characteristic bouquet of cherries and forest berries. On the palate, its dense and soft tannins complement the alcohol content.

Yield: 9,000 kg. per hectare
