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. A plot of 0.5ha of 40-50 year old vines. Open, sweet spice, and red fruit characteristics that are engaging, seductive and textured yet with the right balance of energy and freshness. Generous but with poise. 14.5% 4,000 bottles were made.
