  • Tasting Note: This fills the nostrils with violets and toffee, then seduces the mouth with blackcurrant and dried figs, followed by intriguing secondary flavours of tar and mushroom to keep the drinker paying attention.
  • Food Matching: Ideally with spicy meat and fish dishes, matured cheeses and game.
  • Vineyard: Exclusively Carignano grapes from bush-growth and counter-espalier vineyards in the lower Sulcis area. The soil composition is a medium mixture, tending to loose, with clay, sand and limestone composition. The climate is Mediterranean with hot and dry summers, mild winters.
  • Vinification: Fermentation takes place on the lees at a controlled temperature between 25°and 28° with frequent periodic remontage. After malolactic fermentation, maturation takes place in resin coated vats. The wine refines in bottles for few months before release.
