Vinification & Ageing: soft pressing of the grapes with stems then left to rest at low temperature to assist decantation. A single starter from the same grapes is prepared and combined with the pressed must, which has been transferred to our concrete tanks to start a naturally spontaneous, slow fermentation at no more than 18°C lasting 20+ days. The wine is then left to rest in cement vats on fine lees for 9 months, before being bottled for 12 months before release.
Awards & Tasting Notes
In the glass it has an almost compact, clear and lively ruby color.
Characterised by wild notes of gibier, it offers the nose hints of berries accompanied by violet and rose. This is followed by varietal vegetal notes that leave room for herbs such as rosemary and mint to close with a light balsamic note from eucalyptus.
to the taste it presents itself without residual sugars, quite warm with mature and non- invasive tannins. It goes well with stewed game. – Amedeo Barbato, Enologist
Deep, lustrous ruby. Lifted, perfumed cassis with hints of cherry. Really pretty and with lots of depth and with an undertow of savoury spice and dark earth. Strikingly medium- bodied and light on its feet. Cherry, blueberry and cassis fruit with soft, grainy tannins that stick to the fruit on the finish. Truly appetising. Drink 2022-2028 (WS).
