Maior Terre de la Custodia, is produced from Sagrantino grapes that are grown at an altitude of approx. 450 metres above sea level, using the spurred cordon training system from vineyards that are approx. 18 years old, located in the Gualdo Cattaneo area. The land is medium hilly with a southern exposure, where we find a clayey soil rich in lignite. The surface area of the vineyard is approx. 22 ha with a planting density of 3300 vines/hectare for an average production per hectare of 70 quintals.

The grapes are harvested by hand during the coolest hours of the day, usually from mid-October, selected and placed in 15 kg perforated crates and immediately taken to the winery. Once there, they are destemmed and lightly crushed, placed to ferment with inoculation of selected yeasts in steel tanks with an automated cooling and pumping over system. The pumping over only begins when the alcohol levels have reached an optimal stability for the extraction of the tannins, so that they bind with the colouring substances for long stability. Alcoholic fermentation lasts about 20 days during which it remains in contact with the skins. After separation from the skins, malolactic fermentation takes place in steel, again at a controlled temperature.

Maturation is carried out in barriques and tonneaux for 18 months and then bottled with a further 6 months of refinement before marketing.

Sommelier Suggestion We recommend decanting a few hours in advance so that the wine can aerate to awaken all the aromas. Use a pot-bellied, fairly flat carafe that offers a large contact area between the wine and the air.
Tasting Notes In the glass it is a very intense ruby red colour with garnet hues. The nose is complex and intense and is characterised by hints of wild blackberry jam, rhubarb, bitter cocoa and sweet spices. Very persistent in the mouth, it is a wine of great body and structure, warm, with an elegant tannic texture.
Pairing Advice
Pairing Perfect companion for grilled meat with a good fat content, such as pork, lamb, goose and beef with strong marbling. A worthy companion for large stews and game.
