    Hand harvested from young vines planted in dense volcanic basalt with some tuff, sandstone, brown forest soil and clay at 180m altitude

     

    Grapes were harvested in multiple steps to catch the perfect ripeness 

     

    Slow, gentle whole-bunch pressing then the grapes are transferred to clay amphoras where they ferment and age for 10 months

     

    Bottled mid July unfined, unfiltered and without the addition of SO2

  • Tasting Notes

    Freshly cut flowers pair with lemon sherbet and white peach. Flinty minerality and full of tension and longevity.
