After harvesting, the grapes, harvested manually, are brought to the winery as quickly as possible and subjected to destemming-crushing.

The alcoholic fermentation takes place in thermally regulated stainless steel containers, with the addition of selected yeasts keeping the varieties divided. With the static separation of the marc liquid, the wine is racked for 50% of the mass, in barriques and tonneaux of American and French oak, renewed every year for a quota equal to about 50%, and for the remaining part in vats steel.

In the same containers it matures for a period that can vary depending on the vintage from 12 to 15 months.

After maturing, the cut is made between the two varieties, and assembled in stainless steel containers. After bottling it still remains in the cellars for another 6 months.

Valcalepio Rosso Lyr 2016 Eligio Magri red wine

Ruby red color.

The nose has aromas of forest fruits such as blackberry and raspberry. Next we notice the cherries in spirit, and the scents of the undergrowth. The green pepper looks like a spot of non-dominant color. On the whole the aromas are precise and without any smudging, the aromas of a pleasantly young wine.

On the palate it is confirmed. Good presence of tannins, such as the perception of acidity and minerality. He has fabric and it is understood that the tailor who sewed him knows his job. Good persistence and the memory that leaves is pleasant.

Among the wines of Eligio Magri, Lyr expresses the synthesis between the different facets of the red Valcalepio.
