Tasting Notes

Colour

Attractive ruby-red with crimson tinges.

Nose

Coffee, blackberries, red berries and grilled aromas dominate.

Palate

Mellow to start with, round and delicate tannins, with a warm and very lingering finish.

Production

The wine is made according to a traditional process that takes into account the grapes' character. This requires excellent quality grapes and the vineyard's
total dedication to this process. Following malolactic fermentation, the wines are rapidly clarified and preserved at low temperatures beneath inert gas.

Soils

They vary widely across the production area and include sandy soils, clay-and-limestone soils and stony soils.
