Tasting Note:

Really persistent, focused, pristine red fruit. So stylish and complete. A controllled and driven character to the fruit compliments the rich silkiness of the vintage so well. The wild strawberry, raspberry, griotte and sweet-spice characteristics both energise and seduce. Noble, poised and complex. 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.
