The grapes are hand harvested and sorted before total destemming. Traditional maceration in inox containers for around 20 days. Malolactic fermentation in clay jars with lees work. Aged for 6 months in amphorae.

Oak Treatment

No oak treatment

Tasting Note

A rich and fruity style of wine with big red berry flavours, subtle spice, mouth watering acidity, smooth tannins and a long lasting finish. The with the gentle micro oxygenation making the juicy red fruit flavours linger on your palate.

Food Matching

A wine to savour on a cool Autumn evening, or pair with some taps or fish, or slow cooked red meat in a rich sauce.
