Variety: 100% Graciano
Ageing: 18 months in new Allier oak casks
Made of 100% Graciano grapes that come from 30-year old vines on which we perform green harvesting of the clusters so as to limit the yield to 3,500 Kg/Ha.
The malolactic fermentation takes place in new Allier oak casks and it was aged in the same casks for 18 months. It was bottled in December 2017. It needs more time in the bottle to reach its full expression.
COLOUR: Cherry red with good depth, full of life and no sign of evolution.
AROMAS: Glass held still, nuances of moss, blueberries, blackberries. Swirled in the glass, reminders of organic minerals appear with underlying graphite, blackberries and blueberries.
MOUTH: A wine which still has a lively feel. Tasty, glycerine tannins. Long, fresh and flavoursome in the finish, with reminders of graphite, white pepper and wild berries.
