"What beautiful sweetness of fruit here, with plum tart, Indian spices and lightly toasted oak. Full and very velvety, with ripe and fine tannins. Need another two or three years to come around. New winery for me. Look for it." (01/11)

Product Description:

"Concentrated maturing ruby with orange highlights. Good length but ever so slightly simple, alcoholic and a touch tough on the finish. Drink from 2012 to 2017. (WS)" - 15 out of 20 Points, Jancis Robinson's Purple Pages.

Wine:
"Ruby red colour with slight garnet hues. Intense, soft and spicy on the nose. Dry with a great structure, aromatic with a long persistence." - Winery

Vinification/Vineyard:
"Grapes pressing with temperature controlled fermentation (26 - 28 degrees) followed by a 10/12 days maceration in order to obtain from these grapes a largest quantity of substances that will contribute to make this wine rich in the colour and in the corpulence. After the racking, the monolactic fermentation will give to this wine characteristics of softness and considerable structure. Then we have several decantings and permanency in big barrels and barriques during two years minimum. The subsequent period of refining into bottles will take four months minimum but this could increase for a larger period in order to develop more its perfume and aroma."

"The vineyards that produce this wine are planted in S. Angelo in Colle area at 300 meters above sea level with a south exposition and located on a marly land." - Winery
