IGT Toscano Rosso
VIII Giorno originates in the hills surrounding the medieval town of San Gimignano, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The vineyards are raised on medium-textured soils with the presence of marl and albese.
The grapes are carefully selected and hand-picked at full ripeness in the first weeks of October. After 15 days of maceration on the skins, subsequent fermentation with selected yeasts and completion of malolactic fermentation at a controlled temperature, the wine is aged in French oak barrels for 8 months. It rests another 4 months in stainless steel tanks before bottling.
