Exposed at the top of hillsides on chalky soils, the vineyard gives a wine that takes time to reach maturity.
Dark ruby in color, aromatic and spicy, it develops a certain aromatic richness. Red fruits, black berries, flowers, honey, toasted almonds evolving towards leather, spices and scents of undergrowth are specific notes of this wine.
