Tasting Notes: "Macaia" is a word of the Ligurian dialect, probably of Greek origin (from malakia, languor), or perhaps English ("muggy air"). It indicates a particular meteorological condition that occurs in the Gulf of Genoa, the sky is overcast and the humidity is high. Given its specificity, the word has taken over in nautical and meteorological terminology. Over time, the term has also taken on a metaphorical meaning, indicating a particular melancholy and gloomy mood, mixed with anger. The grapes after harvest macerate for about 15/20 days. Affinage takes place in steel tanks and 4 months in old wood barrique and then an additional 4 months in bottle before release.
