Ruby with cherry-red tones. Fresh, intense aromas of ripe red fruits (plum, morello cherry, raspberry) combine with floral notes, wild herbs, liquorice, clove and cedar. Marked mineral flinty character underpins this wine adding to its elegant bouquet. Concentrated and expressive with polished tannins and a long finish.
Terroir and Viticulture
Mediterranean climate with maritime influence. Limestone-rich soils at 800m altitude. This wine keeps its varietal character while retaining the herbal lift and freshness of a high-altitude, cool terroir site.
Aged in 225-liter American and French oak barrels, less than 3 years old, to soften tannin by gentle micro-oxygenation. Oak-aged for 4 months, followed by a period of ageing in bottle for full-integration of flavour.
Suitable for pairing with all types of meat dishes – steak, slow-cooked lamb, BBQ meats – as well as rice and pasta dishes with rich sauces. Also perfect with strong cheeses and cold meats.
