Tasting Note:

A steep sandy vineyard with yellower soils compared to Faset and Albesani. Sandy like Asili but with much less limestone, so you get a more blood orange tone to the wine. This boasts soft sweet, red fruit with a citrus kick and just a hint of earthiness. Charming, seductive, caressing, soft and generous with a lingering finish. A beauty. Vinified for 50-60 days on the skins before ageing for 5 years in large used wooden tanks.
