A deep ruby red, richer when compared to wines grown from our other vineyards. In the nose, it expresses itself as a symphony of aromas ranging from the intense smell of red-orange and violets to fresh balsamic herbal notes. This vineyard is characterized by a more creamy and silky taste coupled with a fun and vibrant saltiness.

Tasting notes: A deep ruby red, richer when compared to wines grown from our other vineyards. In the nose, it expresses itself as a symphony of aromas ranging from the intense smell of red-orange and violets to fresh balsamic herbal notes. This vineyard is characterized by a more creamy and silky taste coupled with a fun and vibrant saltiness. The 2017 vintage has been one of the warmest ones we’ve ever experienced, which is why we decided to harvest 10-12 days earlier than usual. Wines from this vintage are certainly rich and Mediterranean. But we think that with the appropriate manoeuvres in the cellar, especially thanks to a longer time spent in the cement vats, the wines have an interesting energy
