Plot selection : Enveloped in gentle sloping hills formed during the Inferior Cretaceous period, this plot is composed of a hard, thin limestone soil, which alternates with brown marl and limestone marl. Their erosion covered them with colluvial, clay limestone, rich in small limestone debris, which ensures an ample access to water for the vine. This plot also benefits from particularly fresh air, a unique component of the “terroir” here, which allows the grape clusters to ripen more slowly.

Winemaking and Aging : Traditional winemaking with vatting of 30 days. Aging in french oak barrels during 12 to 14 months, then blending in wooden conical trunk tanks during 6 to 9 months before bottling.

Tasting : This wine has a very deep brick red colour. A full-bodied nose, with aromas of undergrowth, black cherry and blackberry. Intense and powerful nose. In the mouth, we have aromas of flowers and violet, sweet spices with a touch of liquorice and, slightly, old leather. Complex and subtle wine with noble and silky tannins.

Aging potential : 15 years

Serving temperature : 18°C

Pairing : Leg of lamb with spices, stuffed mushrooms, pecorino.
