GRAPE ORIGINS

are planted on traditional terraces and

 

small landings of schistous soils.

VINIFICATION

Grapes are hand picked and transported

to the winery in small plastic crates. A

Tasting Notes

 

It is a red wine with an intense vibrant colour. Very fine and

 

complex nose, combining ripe red fruits with floral notes, well

 

integrated wood and a rich spicy finish. On the palate is fresh,

 

elegant, well-balanced, with an excellent structure and a great

 

length of finish.
