Description: This international class wine, referred to as “wacky wine” by veteran cellarman Alvaro Palini, is produced with grapes from old merlot, cabernet and barbera vines. This complex layered wine pours an inscrutable ruby red. The aroma has hints of preserved berries, cocoa, spices, ink and a long balsamic effluvium. It is round and firmly structured with a dense tannic weave, but stunningly fresh by virtue of the presence of the barbera grapes. It is a lingering wine that excels when aged. It is stored for 30 months in small oak barrels and at least one year in glass. It is easily matched with grilled meats, semi-hard cheeses and game meat
Harvest: handmade beginning of september and october
Vinification: grapes are crushed and de-stemmed, fermentation is made in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperature 28˚C. Maceration of 4 weeks with pumping-over and delestage. Ageing: barriques and tonneaux for 24 months, in bottle for at least 18 months

Our farm covers about 40 hectares of land, 30 of which vineyards and 10 olive groves, located in the hilly areas of Arquata and Colcimino, famous since ancient times for the high quality of oil and wine.
The company was founded in the 60s of the last centuries, from the intuition of Domenico Adanti, who decided to buy the villa of Arquata in order to create a modern winery aiming at a production of high-quality wine. Thus began the renovation of the old convent of the Celestine Friars, built on the remains of the Roman period and then of the late Renaissance, while carrying out the replanting of the old vineyards and the planting of new ones.
