Story

TASTING NOTES: Light, bright burgundy color packs aromas of dried cherries, pomegranate seeds, and dusty red roses. A vibrant palate with charming fruit, well -balanced tannins, mélange of dried and fresh red fruits, refreshing acidity and pronounced earthiness.

VINIFICATION: Partial carbonic maceration on the stems and without sulfur. The 2018 spent nearly a month on the skins and was lightly pressed in a basket press. Most of the wine was aged in concrete Amphora for a long malolactic fermentation with a small amount going into neutral puncheon. Aged 10 months. Filtered for clarity and stability. 20 ppm SO2 at bottling.
