The grapes from our older Graciano vines were cultivated following best organic practice. As a result, this wine is special given that it combines the character of this grape with the features of the local soil and climate. The wine has benefited from twelve months ageing (the Crianza process) in barrels of American oak, followed by a further period of ageing and settling in bottles. This elegant wine has an appealing colour characterised by an intense violet hue especially obvious in the case of the teardrop.
- Visual: Notable for its intense deep blackberry / cherry colour. Stable at the edges.
- Nasal: Agreeable nose. Attractive flavour of fruit compote. (blackberry, blackcurrant, blueberry) with hints of balsamic and ending with the aroma of ground coffee.
- Taste: Juicy, prolonged and persistent. The pronounced tannins are matched by the toasted flavours redolent of good barrel age. All of which contributes to allowing the fruit flavours to be the protagonist.
