DESCRIPTION

Highest expression of our calcareous “terroir”. Produced from old, low-production vines. Limited-production wine: only 3,000 75 cl. bottles are produced.

TASTING

Bright yellow, the colour of new gold. On the nose, a good complexity of penetrating aromas of tropical fruits and hints of sweet spices derived from barrel ageing. In mouth, dense and unctuous. Full-bodied with a fresh acidity that evolves towards an extraordinarily long and balanced finish, in which the fruit reappears together with fine toasted nuances.
