The Rubillo Cesanese is a bright ruby red in colour, with excellent intensity and violet hints. On the nose, there are perfumes of ripe red fruits and spice. On the palate, the wine is ripe and rounded, with spiced blackberry characters and a refreshing savoury finish.
The grapes were harvested and sorted by hand. Fermentation took place in temperature-controlled stainless-steel tanks at 24 – 28°C. Racking and délestage were carried out in order to extract colour and aromas. The wine was then aged in steel and concrete vats for six months, followed by a minimum of two months in bottle.
The vineyards are located at 300 metres above sea level in the classic area of Castelli Romani, situated between the ancient volcanic area of southern Lazio and the city of Rome. The soil is volcanic and particularly fertile and the vines are aged between 15 and 30 years old. The trellising system is Guyot and spurred cordon, and plant density is around 4,000 per hectare.
The 2020 vintage proved to be balanced and steady, with warm summer temperatures that were moderated by the vineyards’ location in a well-ventilated area in the hills south of Rome. Good levels of rainfall during the winter months topped up water reserves in the soils and kept the vines healthy during the growing season. Harvest commenced at the end of August and continued until mid-October, resulting in the grapes being picked at the perfect stage of ripeness. Yields were lower than previous vintages with smaller berries that displayed high levels of concentration and fruit flavours.
