Tasting Note:

Wonderfully fragrant, floral nose. Very fluid, delicate and elegant. Creamy, supple tannins thread through the red berry, plum and plum stone fruit. A melt in the mouth texture and elegance belies this wine’s underlying intensity and complexity, which builds gradually through the palate, culminating in peacock’s tail of flavour that fans out splendidly on the long finish. There is a Burgundian touch to the shape of this beautiful wine. Pure seduction. The result of fermenting single berries picked grape by grape (from where its name “one by one” comes) in large open oak vats, this used to be a selection of the best fruit from within Arborina but as of 2015 now also includes Cannubi, Cerretta, Le Liste and Pernanno fruit, too. It takes 8 people ten days to pick this, all for 1500 bottles! This method is important as it avoids crushing and keeps the berries intact giving great finesse to the tannins and precision to the fruit.
