Aromas of glossy, spicy oak and plush, ripe dark plums with hazelnut and tarry nuances, too. The flavorful palate delivers in assertive and bold style with a juicy and intense surge of fruit, holding long into the finish.

Additional Details

Vine pruning, timber pulling, bending, clamping and lifting, sorting of grapes … All this careful process is carried out by hand in full respect of the vines so that they offer us between the end of September and the beginning of October, during the long awaited harvest, beautiful fruit suitable for vinification.

No herbicide is used to preserve environment.

After filling the vats equipped with temperature control, during the cold maceration  , the juice develops complex aromas. Then, the vats are gently warmed to awaken the indigenous yeasts and launch the alcoholic fermentation.

The palate is medium-bodied and apart from the structure, quite Loire-like with that bell pepper note towards the finish.

Return Policy:

Shipping wine around the country is very expensive. We charge about a third less than what it actually costs us. If you need to return your order (or if the wine gets returned back to us because you were unable to receive it after 3 attempts and you didn't email us to make other arrangements), we need to collect a return shipping fee that is up to double the amount of the shipping you paid. Upon receiving the wine back we will refund for the wine minus the initial shipping cost. In the event that we make a mistake we work with you to fix whatever went wrong at no additional cost to you.
