Querciavalle La Capanna IGT Sangiovese

These vines were planted in year 2000, deriving from clones selected by the Losi family from ancient Sangiovese vineyards located in the wine estate. Situated at 300-350 meters above the sea level, southerly facing, the vineyard favorably supports a regular and optimal aging of the grapes Hilly slopes, medium–mixture sandy and clayey soil, with typical Galestro marl and Alberese limestones enhance the intense bouquet of this wine.

Aging: 3 months in French oak barrels.
Color: limpid, intense ruby red, with purple reflections.
