ALLEANZA I.G.T.

“A wine in perfect balance between the style of the old and new worlds.”

The style and talent of two wine producers with a wealth of experience and different origins, Giancarlo Roman of Tuscany and Ed Sbragia of California, come together in a perfect union to give rise to this wine.

It is an appointment long awaited throughout the year by the two friends: a couple of days undisturbed in the cellar, tasting each wine, barrique after barrique, assessing, suggesting, tasting, correcting, testing and testing again, until they find the right balance, the harmony, the point where they come together perfectly. This will be the recipe for that year: a wine which gives expression to each grape from which it originates, and to the vintage.

Wine production
The wine is obtained from the best grapes of the castle vineyards, which have recently been renewed (2000 and 2001). During the alcoholic fermentation process, techniques are applied that make it possible to obtain the best extraction in the most natural way. The crushing of the skins is protracted. The malolactic fermentation is carried out in new French oak barriques: during this long phase, the lees are stirred manually.

At the end, the wine is transferred to the castle’s ancient cellars, in barriques of first and second passage, for a period of 16/18 months. The wine is presented only after a further ageing in the bottle of at least 6 months.
