The grapes are harvested when they are completely ripe and are then immediately processed. Destemming is followed by fermentation with skin contact, which is continued until the correct extraction of polyphenolic substances and aromas are achieved. Once the juice is drawn off the lees and after malolactic fermentation, the new wine matures in small wooden barrels for approximately one year and another eight months in bottles.

It is lovely deep, bright garnet when poured into a glass. The nose shows typical aromas of ripe red fruit, marasca cherries and dried plums. The palate is still, dry, full-bodied, well-orchestrated, showing sweetness due to its glycerol and ethanol components and the typical spicy notes of the grape variety as well as a good tannic weave. The palate confirms the nose. As the wine ages in the bottle, it increases its olfactory complexity, highlighting spicy and dried fruit overtones.

The “Bufnis” is excellent paired with game, red meats, fiorentina (huge T-bone steak served in Tuscany), roasts and hard cheeses.
