The unconditional focus on quality in order to bring quality to perfection is noticeable in Elegia. The result is terrific! What makes it so unique? The grapes come from some very old vines and are processed gently and with the greatest care. It was aged for twelve months in French barrels. Oak brings complexity and finesse. This Riserva is one of the best of its kind every year. A "gentleman" from a Primitivo!

Aged 12 months in French Oak
A deep ruby red sparkles in the glass with garnet reflections. Its bouquet is lavish with a complex aroma fan. Hints of prunes, cherries, ripe forest berries, and highly delicate spicy notes, toffee, vanilla, with balsamic accents. It skillfully fills the palate with its supple body, its noble structure with soft, perfectly interwoven tannins. Fully ripe fruit aromas and nuances of vanilla, spices, and toffee harmonize wonderfully and show a strong aroma supported by velvety, slightly sweet tannins. The aging in French barriques gives the wine finesse and elegance without adulterating its character. The extended finale, too, reveals seductive roasted aromas and spicy, balsamic notes. You usually have to pay much more for a wine of this type. A "gentleman" and undoubtedly a real revelation for the nose and palate.
