100% Frappato. From 2 different estate parcels with vines averaging about 40 years old. One parcel is older, bush-trained vines on a sandier version of the estate's red-clay-limestone soils; the other is younger, Guyot-trained on more limestone. The sites are at a higher altitude and harvested later than the Frappato that goes in the SP68 bottling. The fruit is destemmed but the grapes left whole for crushing; fermentation is with native yeasts in concrete tank with a 30-day maceration. The wine is first aged for 8 months in 25-hectoliter Slavonian oak botti and for another 8 months in concrete tank, before being bottled unfiltered.
