Grapes harvested in the first tens days of October are stemmed and softly pressed. The fermentation and maceration lasts 25 days in vitrified cement, pumping the must over the cap twice daily. After the malolactic fermentation and several rackings, the wine is bottled and then undergoes further aging in the bottled before being released to the market.

Wine AdvocateThe 2008 Colli Amerini Rosso Superiore is a hearty blend of Sangiovese (65%), Canaiolo (20%) and Montepulciano (15%). It has the density and muscular fortitude to stand up to grilled or stewed meats, plus the fresh acidity and mild tannins to marry those dishes. Dark fruit, leather, smoke and tobacco come into focus.
