These wines represent the spearhead of San Simone production. We select the richest grapes to achieve the highest level of TYPICALITY, elegance and concentration. We generally prefer the steel tanks for fermentation and maturation of our wines but over the last twenty years, for the Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay, we wanted to experiment the small wooden barrels as a tool to exalt the characteristics of the fruit and the territory. The usage of barrels is not to add or cover the aroma but to possibly take off, it works as a discreet and quiet actor.
