Vibrant dark cherry red in colour. Great aromatic intensity of fresh red fruits, balsamic and sweet spice. Red fruit aromas are balanced by subtle toasted notes from 6 months ageing in oak. Silky tannins and a soft fruity finish, this is a well-structured, mouth-wateringly fresh red wine.
Soils in these high altitude vineyards with a 30% inclination are mostly slate.
The 2020 harvest has been one of the earliest in recent years, taking place the last week of August and the first of September. A cold and rainy winter and a summer with warm temperatures resulted in the early ripening of healthy, balanced grapes which were fresh and very aromatic.
Cold maceration of the grapes in scale fridges and of the must 48 hours before alcoholic fermentation. Destemmed but not pressed in order to preserve the primary aromas. 8 months barrel ageing in French and American oak.
