Story

Vineyard

The soil is characterized by sand and clay sediments left over by the evaporation of the Miocene sea. The vines are on average 25 years old.

Vinification

The wines are made in a traditional manner. The fermentation takes approximately 20 days in stainless steel tanks.

Tasting Notes

This wine has a ruby hue with hints of violet. The nose then offers aromas of red berries and a delicate hint of spice and minerality. Supple on the palate, notes of roasted red fruit intertwine with silky tannins and good length. Ageing potential of 5 years.

Food Pairing

Pairs perfectly with grilled red meat, pizza and sheep’s milk cheese.
