Tasting note

“It has ripe black fruit, aromatic Mediterranean herbs and generous spice and smoke with a graphite note. All of these reds reach 15% alcohol and are powerful and full-bodied, made to last. Warmer vintages tend to have a softer texture and gentle acidity with round tannins and a long, lingering finish.”

Vintage 2017

Vintage is marked by average and maximum temperatures above values of the last 10 years, as well as very low rainfall regime. However is in these conditions when our vineyards and grapes have shown their incredible capacity not only to survive but also to give a small quantity with very high quality.
