TASTING NOTE.

Ruby red in colour with a restrained, elegant nose. Perfumes of dark cherry and liquorice give way to spice and plums on the palate. Rounded tannins from the Sangiovese are lifted by the cassis concentration of the Cabernet and melt into a long, perfumed finish.

Grapes are grown on the estate’s 104 hectares of vineyard which are currently being converted to organic production.  Vines are situated at approximately 150-200m above sea level, facing south, south-east and south-west.  Soils are schistous clay with limestone. 

Good rains throughout the winter and beginning of spring gave an excellent start to the growing season. Towards the end of the season a heat spell arrived which gave the grapes good concentration and flavour ripeness.

Fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks for 25 days at temperatures between 18-25°C. The wine was aged in 3.5 hectolitre tonneaux for 14 months, followed by six months in bottle before release.

80% Sangiovese
20% Cabernet Sauvignon
