The elegant, large fruit bouquet offers aromas of finely accentuated cherries, blackberries and wild fruits. In the notes of cardamom, cocoa and licorice show background. A silky smooth, flowing over the tongue. This sensational wine at the international level was aged twelve months and four months in used barrels bottle.
Elegance and balance in the glass! Well structured notes of licorice, cocoa, cherries and blueberries defy a sweet background and are also found on the palate. The Tancredi shows full, captivating and exceptionally resistant. Its aromas of wood are perfectly integrated, as well as the soft tannins.
The wine displays its extraordinary personality and depth from the beginning with its color, a bright amber yellow. After the first, intense notes of apricots and peaches, the bouquet ranges through a labyrinth of sweet sensations of dried figs and honey, herbs and mineral notes.

They are vinified separately and the must, obtained through a soft pressing, completes alcoholic fermentation at controlled temperatures in barriques, in which malolactic fermentation and maturation of six months also occur.
