The Merlot is harvested earlier than the Sangiovese. The fermentation takes place in cement vats with a temperature ranging from 28 ° C to 30 ° C. It is then put to rest in oak barrels for 18 months, from which it inherits an oak aroma that adds to the natural body and fruity flavor.
Being a well-structured wine, it is at its best when served in wide glasses to facilitate the dispersion of floral aromas, at a temperature of about 18-20 ° C.
Pico takes its name from the initials of Pietro and Corrado, the sons of Luigi and Silvia, owners and managers of Podere La Marronaia. Their kids, now adults, contribute to the farm with passion.
