Predominantly Negro Amaro with a small percentage of Malvasia Nera. The maceration is 7 - 8 days at 28°C followed by gentle pressing, fermentation, and aging in stainless steel. This Riserva wine is made only in the best vintages and released at the winemaker's discretion after several years of bottle aging.
