Magma® Rosso 2017

The “Grand Vin” from Barbabecchi vineyard at 910m. asl. Planted around 1910 and North-North East exposed, capturing the first and cool morning sun rays. This pure Nerello Mascalese from ungrafted old vines produces a profound wine, rich as well as elegant at the same time with character and personality: liquorice and oriental spices. Only produced in great vintages where we achieve full phenolic ripeness.

Maceration of 60 days on the skins and fermentation with indigenous yeasts in fiberglass
Aged 18 months in neutral epoxy tanks from 1200 liters to 2500 liters
